Mega Man Quilted Pillow

I wanted to show some in progress pictures of the pillow I made my boyfriend, Alex, for Christmas.

I put in around 25 hours work on it, and it all started from a little graphic the size of my pinkie nail. I blew it up in Photoshop, marked out a grid, broke the colours down into a guide, bought matching fabric, and cut enough squares to put him together pixel by pixel. I then quilted the top, made the back, stuffed&sewed it up and excitedly wrapped it in a ginormous box!

  1. He looks like he loves it! That came together great! Aren't you amazed by how much it shrank once you sewed the squares all together? This is basically the same way I made my Marilyn quilt.

    Happy crafting!
    :o)

  2. You're the one who made the Marilyn quilt?! I love that quilt!!! I've wanted to make a black and white photo quilt, but wall sized after I made this. I have a lot of ideas for how to speed up the process, but I can't decide on what portrait to do.
