This is the template I drew up. It's very rough but it's good enough for me to understand. My dad helped me with the math and it should be big enough for my queen size bed when I'm finished with it.

Okay so I'm having issues again. I want it to look good and my family keeps throwing ideas at me.
My sister said just do a complete LoZ theme across the board using different games and my dad said just to turn the 16-bit to 8-bit or something. **dizzy**

I would make it as simple as you can since it's your first one. Find your designs, get them written down/graphed out/printed out whatever and then just stick with it and don't change it anymore.

I've finally gotten narrowed down and am deciding what will make the border. I'm going to make something similar to the one you showed me, only in 16-bit instead.

I say go with the design you're going to be happiest with and think you'll be able to accomplish. And as for the "back seat crafters", just tell them to hush up unless they plan on making a quilt!  Wink

My sister is trying to help because she wants me to teach her as I go. I told her that if she wants me to get started so I can teach her that she has to stop throwing ideas at me.
As for my dad, he just wants to see what I can do because he's as much of an 8-bit and 16-bit game nerd as I am. He used to play the original Mario Bros. with me and helped me learn to play LoZ: A Link to the Past.

For your sister, I'd get her some fabric scraps or a small charm pack and have her work on a mug rug or something small to learn on. From my perspective, trying to teach someone at the same time you're learning something new can get really frustrating.

I give you kudos for trying to do an 8 or 16 bit quilt...I don't have the patience to cut out millions of little squares Roll Eyes

I can teach as I learn. That's the ONLY way I can teach because otherwise I'm just doing it because it's second nature and whoever I'm teaching gets lost.

Well, I really really want a LoZ quilt and I don't want to have to pay someone to make it so I'm learning patience and teaching myself to do it.

I totally had the same idea. Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past was one of the first LoZ games I ever played and completed. I've been messing around transferring some of the images from the game into pixels on a grid. I was wondering if you were planning on having any sort of separation between the blocks? Also with the way you have it set up, since Link is, on average, twice the number of pixels compared to his items (Most are ~12, and link is 22) the best option is an even number of squares up and down, and an odd number left an right...

Humm, although my idea of a number of 14x14 inch squares, with each square containing 1 inch square pixels (okay I'm realizing just how many squares this idea is going to take... and it makes my head hurt)

So any ideas would be nice! (By the way, not including the upgrades, there's the Bow, Boomerang, 3 spells, lantern, fire rod, Ice rod, cape, 2 canes, fairy, bee/good bee, 3 potions(all 5 of which go into bottles) book of mudora, whistle and the bird you summon (oh and the shovel you get to GET the whistle), hammer, mirror, hookshot, bombs, magic powder, bug catching net, pegasus boots, gloves, flippers, moon pearl, compass, map, key, big key, the crystals, the pendants, magic vials (for restoring your magic meter) rupees, heart refill, heart piece and heart container, his sword and shield, armor, oh and the Triforce.

Obviously this is a lot of items, and a number of them are optional, like all 3 spells... Since the canes are different types, you'd only need 1...

GAH the options and possibilities are driving me insane!

*Grumbles* 14 doesn't even work! some of them are 16 pixels! (actually the items are 12 and 14, but I'm giving them a 1 pixel buffer on all sides, making the squares 14 and 16)
