I decided to make this quilt as a gift about eight days before the recipiants birthday. It is the dog that laughs at you when you miss the ducks in the much celebrated game Duck Hunt. This was my first quilt and it was a bit of a pain considering the time limit and lack of experiance. It was done in 1.5" squares and is about the size of a twin bed comforter. I used the link another poster had up for a website that had video game characters drawn out on grid paper. It came together fast and i think it turned out pretty well. Classic nintendo pixels are perfect for quilts. Right now I just have the top done, but i was really excited to post it. Hopefully i can get more pictures up when i have a finished product. It is going to be backed and binded in solid black and i am going to stitch in the ditch for my quilting. I couldn't get any really good angles so excuse the edge of the coffee table and the wrinkles in the quilt. The flash made some of the fabric seem inconsistant colors but i think its just how the light hit it.

That really is pretty damn impressive.
What color do you plan on using for the back?  The trim?

That is truly amazing. Great work on keeping everything straight. I have to find that link and see what other video game characters are on there.

Thank you for all the kind words! I was really nervous of giving this as a gift, but my nerves have been calmed a lot now. I am using solid black on the back and as binding and the link for the emblem site with the characters is: http://www.smashboards.com/fzero/emblems5.php

your quilt top looks great!

i'm in the middle (more like the top corner) of a huge quilt made up of 1.5 inch squares, i was wondering what you thought was the best cutting method to ensure that your squares were all even because it looks like all your corners match up perfectly.

really nice work.

This is the type of quilt that would convince my husband that quilts are cool. I'm in awe of your patience and sewing skills.  Smiley
