Oh yay! I think I'm going to try to do a square again this year. I really want to do tetris blast. And I have just the screen shot in mind!

Yay!!! Glad that we are working on another one...and hopefully life starts treating you better!

I already have one finished (just haven't posted a pic yet)...and three more started (but 1 didn't get put on the list, because I can't remember which game it's from...plus I messed up on counting and am pushing it off)

I like it better too, but I can't get it to cooperate and it looks terrible when I play with it in KG and PCStitch. All confetti-y and just nasty looking, no real definition.

I like this one too. Let me know if I can help with fixing it up, arkani. :)

If you could, that would be ah-mazing, BMH! If you need a different/better pic of it, I can always go jump on a new ME2 game and get some more shots in different/better/bigger formats.

Can't wait to get started on more quilt squares. :) I splurged and bought myself PC Stitch but haven't had anything to make on it yet.

Hi BMH... could you help me turn these into patterns please?

For Paperboy, when I use KG, it looks terrible. PC is okay if I use 30+ colors (which seems excessive). I also only have the free version, so I can't save the pattern and send it.

For Yoshi, I can't get him to look decent no matter what I do. [Also, I know someone else claimed Yoshi's Island. The way I stitch, it will be for the 2018 Charity quilt].

Any help is appreciated. Also, any help telling me what you did would be great, so I can get these patterns figured out myself. Thank you!

Hey LucyInTheSky, First obstacle is that these pictures are in .jpg format. jpg's are compressed images that don't preserve the individual pixels. If possible, try getting a .png or .bmp file. Those will preserve the pixels and come out much cleaner.

Nice long time, I'm gonna try and finish my xenoblade chronicles piece.

And maybe thinking of a Fallout square too...

^some of this. For older games like these, I prefer a png or gif, rather than a bmp. (Although, I can work with bmp and even jpg and still get results!)

Thank you for the suggestion (and BMH too). I'll get a png and see what I can do!
