It was bound to happen sooner or later: all those stacked 3D blocks in Q*bert always looked like a geometric "tumbling blocks" quilt anyway. I remember playing Q*bert all the time at a convenience store in the mid-1980s... didn't you? My dad would pick up a carton of milk, and I'd pop a quarter into the Q*bert machine. And every time I've seen a geometric quilt since then, I've looked for the little guy hopping on the blocks. (It's a vicious circle... of blocks.)
Now, Lenore at Evil Mad Scientist Labs has instructions for you to make a Q*bert quilt yourself. All you really need is patience, precision, basic sewing skills, and a bunch of fabric and notions. And yes, unlike the generic block quilts of my adolescence, this one really features the tiny orange dude himself.
It'll cost you more than a quarter, but it'll last longer than your gameplay probably did back in '83.
