This quilt was made for my husband. It was a lot of work. It felt a bit like a cross stitch pattern. It is all 1.5" wide strips and squares put together according to a chart. The pattern is The Hero from Carolina Patchworks. I long arm quilted it by renting time on a friend's long arm. I dyed the back with low water immersion dyeing to get the look I wanted.

if you are familiar with the Zelda games, the above picture shows how this area was quilted with little hand drawn triforce and heart containers
