Totally awesome. I've only done more traditional designs, but I really like this idea.

For those new to quilting, some terminology.

Technically, this is a comforter not a quilt. A quilt must be quilted -- this is "tied". So, while it's patchwork, it's not a patchwork quilt. The terms get confused a lot, especially in the US. And it isn't terribly important, but I thought some might like to know.

Usually in patchwork the seams are 1/4 inch and are pressed to one side, not open. That's to reduce bulk at the intersections. Of course, it completely depends on the pattern whether or not open seams will reduce bulk. But if you've got four squares coming together, and the seams are pressed open, there's a sort of lump at the intersection.

If the seams are pressed to one side in a sort of spiral pattern, the seams interlock or mesh at the intersection, and it's much flatter. This is difficult to explain in words. There's a decent picture at:

Getting this to work out isn't as hard as it might sound, and there are techniques for assembly that make it easier to do. But it certainly isn't a requirement.

What an awesome quilt! I was thinking of doing something like this for my brother's birthday....and a Zelda one would be so cool. Hmmm I wonder how you would make a Zelda theme?

I think the reason they look different it because of the "grain" of the fabric, and also some might be flipped over. I'm sure it looks just fine in person, give it character Smiley
