I love the concept of combining the old and the new. Quilting is an oh-so-useful craft that goes back hundreds of years. Recycling scraps of fabric to make a sturdy bedcover has been elevated to an art form. It seems anachronistic at first glance, but 8-bit pixelated arcade game icons lend themselves well to the design of patchwork quilts.
1. Galaga Quilt
Lenore at Evil Mad Scientist adapted the traditional "tumbling blocks" quilt pattern and made a pieced quilt based on the videogame Q*bert!
3. Mega Man
The maker of this Pacman quilt posted at Kotaku isn't identified, but you can click for a closer view at the site. It seems to be a counted cross-stitch project!
5. Super Mario
6. Mario mushroom quilt
7. Space Invaders
Here you see Craftster rainbowmeow working on her Space Invaders quilt. It was her first quilt, and turned out wonderfully.
8. Zelda quilt
Quilters are not limited to 8-bit icons! This awesome Zelda Wind Waker wallhanging was quilted by AGiES' mother over several months. She even hand-dyed some of the fabrics!
If anyone knows of a World of Warcraft quilt, I'd like to see it!
