The Nycan Cat quilt begins!

In my last post I showed you what my grandson and I are working on. If you guessed I was making a Nyan Cat quilt you were right. Would you believe that before last night I had never heard of a Nyan Cat!

When Xander showed me the pixel art I figured no big deal this will make a cute mug rug………what was I thinking! I’m using 2.5 inch squares and it just keeps growing!

and here is what he is usually doing………….

Nyan Cat quilt - the BeginningThe first photo is how farย  I we are today. Unfortunately “someone” wasn’t paying attention and I added the dark blue squares around the tail……….now I find out “we” have to add a rainbow.

Now that Xander has been showing me all the Nyan Cat stuff I can’t believe how popular it is. I guess I am showing my age as graphics like this were what computer games were like in the “old” days. His favorite game right now is Minecraft which has graphics like this………yuck. I love the graphics in games like World of Warcraft……yes I admit I like computer games.

I have no idea how big this is going to be but I’m going to work like crazy to finish it as I just got word that “they” aren’t leaving until it is done. Talk about incentive!!

Tomorrow morning I have to go help Builder Bob finish the small deck and guess what? He has a injury too! To be continued……..

  16. The quilt looks great but I have never heard of this cat before. So I get the impression that Xander is the desinger only and not the stitcher?!
