For my first picture post, I wanted to show my Metroid quilt. I spent about 14 months working on this from start to finish. To design it, I had a bunch of taped together graph paper and then zoomed into a picture of the NES box art to see each of the pixels and drew it on the graph paper.
Each of the squares are 1″ finished. At the bottom, I stitched “Press Start”. The quilt is about 60″ x 80″. I quilted it myself.
When I was working on this, the recipient came over a few times unexpectedly and I’d make him wait outside the house while I frantically hid the pieces.
