Pole Position Quilt: Prepare to Qualify

Back in the day, Pole Position was one of my all-time favorite arcade games. Not only was it the first full-color POV racing game, it had some of the most groundbreaking graphics in its time. With today’s photorealistic racing games like the Gran Turismo and PGR series, it’s amazing how far we’ve come. Now you can harken back to those kinder, gentler, pixelated days with this nostalgic Pole Position quilt.

Stitched by the arcade fans from Carolina Patchworks (who’ve also brought us some great Galaga, Mario and Zelda quilts), the 110″ x 50″ Pole Position throw is wide enough to keep four people cozy and warm under its race-car adorned surface.

The quilt can be found in their Etsy shop for $375 — or enough for 1500 quarters to pump into the original arcade machine.

Now with any article about Pole Position, I couldn’t resist throwing in this great video clip…

Now wasn’t that worth it?
