Thanks guys! The contact paper idea sounds really cool too I might have to try that when I get some time away from this quilt!! I am trying to finish it up by christmas and I was moving along pretty good until tonight I get down to the last border block (or whatever its called lol Im not good with quilting terminology) and realize I am about 10x19in short on fabric!!! UGHHHHHH and my car is in the shop so Ill have to wait for the hubby to get off and take me back to Joanns tomorrow. So it may not be entirely finished by christmas morning but maybe itll at least be close enough to wrap up and have my son open it! I have decided to tie it off instead of machine quilting like I originally planned...And let me just say I have a newfound respect for quilters cause this crap is HARD! I thought the worst part was gonna be cutting out all the tiny blocks and sewing them together but that was nothing compared to trying to piece them all together and finding out somehow they are slightly different sizes and not entirely square blocks and all that fun stuff...But I think itll turn out okay, I know my 8 year old isnt going to notice if the blocks arent a perfect square lol...Heres some pics..Sorry for crappy quality, the are cell phone pics.


putting the border blocks (the blue ones) in between all the characters...I got down to the one between the star and goomba and ran short on fabric  Angry


laying the blocks out on top of the backing fabric (red muslin)

I FINALLY FINISHED THE QUILT!! YAYYYY lol  Grin it took me about 6 months and the past 4 days have been pretty much nonstop working on it. My hand is so sore from doing all the ties and my foot hurts from pressing the sewing pedal lmao. But its done! Ill get some good pics with my camera later, these are from my phone


laying it out to pin the edges after I put all the ties in


with the edges pinned, pretty much what it looks like finished

Thanks! Merry Christmas to you too  Smiley

I forget the exact finished measurements I wanna say it was about 90" tall by 70" wide....it is a little bigger than queen bed size. Heres a pic of us holding it up and thats my son (the one I made it for) in front of it.
