Gretings everyone.
In July I decided I wanted a quilt and set off to assemble my first quilt.
I decided on characters from Megaman 2, a classic NES game and used the main character and three of my favorite robot masters from the game.
I found sprites online and put them together to form the image.
The finished size is approximately 50 inches by 60 inches.
There are approximately 2880 squares in this quilt and they are 3/4 inch finished size.
I have learned that I do not enjoy hand stitching the binding, but I know it is a necessary evil with quilting.
(I would put the picture in the post, but I am a new user and have not met the requirements)

Thank you for the nice words. I decided to dive in and was fortunate the results were good.
Also, thank you for modding the first post.
I just heard about this community during a recent convention where I talked to a few members.  I was just finishing my project during the convention and they suggested I join the site.
