Pictures to Pixel Quilts »
InstructionsI used Myphotostitch.com to make a cross stitch chart out of my photo.
Type of item: Home Decor
What was your inspiration?
I was making a quilt for my nephew. I have seen a few of these pixelated quilts lately, and thought this might make a masculline look.
What are you most proud of?
I ordered the Kona cottons from overseas (I live in Norway and the fabric was bought at Pink Chalk fabrics online shop) and the colors actually worked, even though I didn't see them in person first. I also love that you can actually recognise Erlend in the quilt. (from a distance)
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Spend a lot of time cropping your picture and finding the right grid. Be careful when you do the piecing, or else the rows will not be straight enough.
