Several of you lovely people have asked for a photo of Galaxy 1824 that you can share. I am flattered and honored that you’d want to do so.
This is the quilt I made for my son to take for his freshman year of college. He’s studying Physics and asked for a spiral galaxy. I used a NASA photo for inspiration and figured it out one pixel at a time.
Today is Make it Mosaic over on Fandom In Stitches. There was HUGE excitement when I first posted the Challenge, but it we only had a tiny turn out. Even so, the entries received were super cute and I appreciate each one!
Most of the time when we have a Challenge or Event on FiS, I’m the organizer. I still like to participate even though it would be silly to award myself, so if there are enough minutes to squeeze out of the day, I’ll whip something up to share.
With that in mind, I created this fun Frogger design! I didn’t play video games much as a kid, but when I did, I tended to play Frogger. My game abilities are limited, as was my pocket money as a kid, so I focused every quarter on the same game in the hopes that I would improve and not completely waste the dollar bills I had to spend at the Putt Putt!
Made from 2 1/2″ squares. You can adapt it to your own needs by increasing or decreasing the patch sizes.
There is also a possibility that I spent a bit of time getting splatted by cars as I tried to safely navigate my frog across the road. It was research, I swear it was research! Play Frogger for free here.
Stop by Sewhooked on November 20, 2014 for more about my block and a fun giveaway!
Open the Print dialog (shown below) by clicking the printer icon.
Choose which Pages to Print. In the example “All” is chosen, but if there is an instruction page, skip that and just enlarge the pattern pages. It may be least confusing to enlarge one page at a time.
Under Paper Sizing & Handling, choose Poster (see image).
Determine the starting Pattern Size and the chart below to determine what percentage to enlarge to Pattern Size Needed. For example, to print a 5″ pattern at 10″, Tile Scale (see below) will need to be 200%.
Five of my quilts were in the Babylock booth and I will give a free prize to every person that took a picture of one of them…just leave a link to your photo in comments and make sure to include your contact info!
