My LoZ Quilt!

One of the Skills that I wanted to perfect was quilting.  This felt like a fantastic way to improve my hand stitching quite a bit!  So, I figured I’d begin simple.

I sleep on a twin sized bed, so I did the math based on a Twin bed.

This was my idea.  Find a simple pixel picture of Link (As you can see him here).  Stitch a bunch of 3 1/2 inch blocks together (With 1/4 inch seam allowance for a 3″ surface) and sew them all together, to make a nice neat pattern!

As you can see, my hand stitching is nice and neat.  I don’t think the stitches are small enough, but that’s something that will come in time.  I doubt these will pull apart very easily.

I used a bunch of different fabrics for the various colors.  I didn’t want it just to be solidly colored, but wanted to create an interesting array of fabric appearances, so each of the fabric has a pattern that is different from the one next to it.  Also, on the solid ‘background’ I alternated between two different patterns, to give the ‘field’ a pixel look

By no means am I finished yet.  In fact, I’ve just finished that 18th block at the furthest end there.  My anxiety has been very bad, so it’s been difficult to pursue projects such as this, since I’m struggling to do things like stay on top of laundry, but I wanted to get this  posted here,because I am proud of what’s been produced sofar.
