Pixel Reveal...

Today is the BIG reveal of my Pixel mini Art Quilt

This quilt top measures 20 x 30" and is now going to undergo a little FMQ - I'm thinking something really modern but doesn't steal the attention.


 This is how it all started -
there are 6 blocks of 10x10 squares
Each square was 1.5" to start...

Actually wasn't difficult at all...
I ironed the pieces onto interfacing and then sewed down the pieces in rows..... 

This was the finished top stuck up on the design wall. When I stand closer, it just looks like a blob, but once I took photos of it, I could see the whole design a lot better. So then we went outside into the sunshine...

Not tooo bad! I like the "woven" look of the blocks.

When I make the photo smaller - as if you're standing further away, it really stands out a lot better.

I'm glad I had this week open to do something a little different. It seemed fitting to just enjoy myself and think about this past year and where everything started and how far its all come, and also everything I would still love to do in the next year.....


Tomorrow will be Quilt Art Designs FIRST birthday! Wow! 


Starting tomorrow I will be going GIVEAWAY WEEK-END Crazy!
Make sure you visit and snag yourself a couple of goodies.....

Love it. I just finished a portrait pixel quilt that I put in my local quilt guild show. It was so cool but unless you looked through the lens of a camera or phone you didn't get to see the full effect of the pixilation. I really love what you have done with the prints in the eye. So lovely.

Interesting. I probably won't do any real pixelated image just some color play. I'm curious about the quilting part and how much it'll change the whole thing.
