I've sewn clothing and whatnot before, but never anything this large (it's roughly queen size with a fleece backing). I can't say it took much skill as I designed it all out on my laptop first, but I am extremely proud. I had to cut about 4/5ths of the 3.5" squares out with scissors, and my machine broke not even 7 squares in. I ended up finishing it at my Nana's on her Designer 1 on the 22nd, 23rd, and the last seam on the 24th only to be given away later that day. This was how I had laid it out: (each square represents the finished 3" square)


Anyhow this is the only picture I have until I can steal my mother's camera. It's not great, but my dog claimed it before my lucky fiance could get it.


Thanks for looking!

Also, I know it's not perfect, but that adds to the homemade charm, right? Haha. Criticism welcome.

It was only something silly like 520 squares, so it really wasn't that bad. Plus I did it in layers, so I think cutting was the most time consuming. After that, it's smooth sailing.

Thanks for the nice comments (on both the quilt and Ginger)!

This is really good. I couldn't imagine cutting the squares with scissors though, good work.
I'm going to be making a queen size Mario one soonish for my Fiance.

If it had grown up, it would have made a dreadfully ugly child; but it makes rather a handsome pig, I think.

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.

looks awesome! i really like it. im in the process of making a video game related quilt right now and i agree cutting the squares is the most time consuming thing ever. i think i need 650-700ish squares just for the picture alone, and then more to fill out the rest :|  hope it comes out as awesome as yours though!

I think cutting the pieces is generally the most time consuming for any quilt. I started cutting out pieces for a double wedding ring quilt about a month ago, and I got fed up and just put it aside. Good luck with your quilt!

Thanks for the wonderful comments all!
