I love the colours and the hand quilting gives it a little something!  Cheesy

My 12 year old retro gamer recognised it immediately and was very impressed. Well done, it is cool. Was it hand sewn?

I'm patient, but not THAT patient!  Tongue I did all the sewing with a sewing machine, all the joining of the squares was done with my normal sewing machine and the quilting itself was done with my mom's long-arm machine (thank God for that!)  Smiley
24  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Quilting challenge #3: EPIC Slime Quilt on: July 25, 2012 05:18:20 PM
I think this fits the definition of "EPIC"  Wink This is a project I started long ago, but never finished. It's one of those "love-hate" projects: I started really excited, then wondered "what was I thinking?" and stopped for a while, then picked up the project again, etc. This challenge gave me the kick I needed to pick up that quilt and finish it once and for all!  Cheesy

All of this started when I decided that I wanted to make a quilt with a character from a video game. Since our living room colors are basically black-grey-white-orange, I decided that a grey quilt would fit nicely. Then my boyfriend thought of a Metal Slime, a smiley baddy from the serie "Dragon Quest". I found a 15X15 pixel pattern from the NES version of the game. I decided to make it 17X25 squares and, since I wanted something big, decided to go with charm squares (5X5 inches). So it ended up HUGE, the short side is longer than me (I'm only 5'2", but still!  Grin )!!

Here it is, with me on it to show the size (and it's bigger in person! Cheesy ):

Here it is being held by my 6'3" boyfriend with his arms streched:

Here are some other pictures, since I'm so proud of it (in the first picture, my boyfriend and my mother are hidden behind it):

Here are work-in-progress pictures:

The center part before it was sewn!

I don't have a picture of the back, it's a dark grey fabric with white dots. Sorry for all the bragging, but I'm really happy that I could finish a project as big as that! Now the question is: what do I do with it?  Tongue

I'm happy the backing can be made from yardage! I have the perfect project for this swap, but it's only the front that's in charm squares! A lot of them!  Wink

29  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Mario amigurumi! on: June 29, 2012 08:28:33 PM
I have a 2 years old godson and he his obsessed with Mario Bros. So his mother asked me to make him a Mario amigurumi!

I had found that pattern from Wolf Dreamer a year or so ago, so I made it! (http://wolfdreamer-oth.blogspot.ca/2009/08/mario-plushie.html)

Here he is! He's not perfect, but I still love him! Smiley

Wow! That is so cool looking.  I've been wanting to make an afghan for the loooongest time, but I'm too chicken to take on such a commitment.  I'm afraid that I will make twenty or so little squares/hexagons and then never finish.  One day I will muster the courage.  Hats off to ya!

Well the idea is to start with 20 or so squares, and then you can put it away. And a couple of weeks/months later you pick it up and make 20 more square, and so on, so in the end, you have a afghan, even if it takes a year! Well, that's my way to do it personnally Tongue I rarely do a big project all at the same time, I usually have to take a break or two somewhere!  Cheesy
