Hello all! I was inspired by all of the pixelated Mario quilts on here, and have decided to embark upon my own pixel quilt journey. I am not going the with the traditional Mario; my husband has instead requested a pirhana plant as a present for graduation of basic training in May. This is my first time making a quilt, as well as my first time ever sewing by hand. Anyway, I wanted to have somewhere to share my progress with, and thought Craftster would be the best place. Grin

It looks pretty good so far! I'm tempted to do a pixel quilt myself. I'm wondering where did you find the image to base your quilt on? or did you design it yourself?

Thank you!! I think it came from spriters resource. http://www.spriters-resource.com/nes/M.html I do not have the skill to design it myself at all lol. I found a black and white image, and then went in with paint and colored it, then printed the image so I know where I am.

I just went back and re-read your entry and realized you're doing it by hand! man extra kudos to you! I tried to make a postage stamp quilt on the machine, which I can do quicker than hand quilting, and got fed up after a day. Hope you'll post the entire quilt after you're done!
