Blogger's Quilt Festival - Modern Entry

This is my second entry for the Blogger's Quilt Festival, to see my first entry please click here.

My second entry for the blogger's quilt festival is for the modern quilts category.

I wanted to enter my Space Invader's quilt.

I loved making this quilt so much.  It took me quite a while, but every time I completed an invader I did a little dance....and named them.  :)
It was amazing, to me, to see it all come together.

For the front (the invaders) I used 2 inch finished squares. 

For the back (my favorite part) I used 1.5 inch finished squares.

The quilt finishes at 58x64.  I machine pieced the quilt, and machine quilted it (on my home machine) with an all over boxy pattern. 

I gave it to my nephew for Christmas and he will not (according to my sister) sleep without it. 

I have Elizabeth Hartman to thank for the inspiration.  She made a space invaders quilt on her blog Oh, Fransson!  way back in 2012.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. So super cute - love the backing too! Pixel quilts rock!

  2. That back is awesome! Great work - and I love the touch of the tank shooting at the invader!

  3. Dropping by from BQF, what an amazing quilt and how fun - hardly surprising your nephew won't go to sleep without it! :D

  4. Love this quilt! The back is genius, and the quilting is perfect for it! Awesome job!
    I've yet to make a pixel quilt, though with my two little guys loving super mario i see one or two in the future!

  5. The back cracks me up. Great work!

  6. I'm pretty sure I said this before....this quilt is all kinds of awesomeness!

  7. This is awesome. I love the back too!

  8. I love how he wont sleep without it! That must make you smile!

  9. That is really fun design and I love that Game Over on back :-)

  10. I have always loved this quilt, but hearing about how much he loves it was the best part. :)
