I remember playing space invaders on the Atari, in my sister's room, when I was little. When I saw Elizabeth Hartman post about the Space Invaders Quilt she was making her nephew, on her blog Oh, Fransson! I knew that this was the one. I bet my nephew has never heard of Space Invaders, but his mother taught me how to play - so it works for me.
I basically decided to copy Elizabeth's colors - cause I love them.
However, she did not make a pattern, so I was on my own. Space Invaders are easy because they are pixelated. So I researched and drew out my own pattern.
|This was so much fun to draw out and color. lol|
|Ignore the fact his ear is off...I'm thinking of leaving it - he is special.|
I am in love. I hope I have enough time in my life to finish this by Christmas. But his birthday is in May - so I may (pun intended) change my due date.
