I like to do quilts of characters from old video games like the original Mario. 

For them I use MS Paint, every windows machine has it installed already.  I open the image, tell it to show grid, then zoom in to 800%.  When I have it centered on the screen I hit Print Screen on my keyboard and open up another copy of paint.  I paste the screen shot in there and crop it down.  I then print it so it takes up the whole page, very easy to work from there.

Wow!........Would these happen to be the "pixel" type quilts I've seen?  This seems so very simple!  Thanks bunches!

Yes, those are the ones.  You can do searches for pixel art, or game sprites to get an idea of what is out there. 

Fewer colors = easier, but I have seen some amazing stuff out there done with different shades of color, prints as well.

Send me a PM if you run want to try this and run into trouble.
