    Legend of Zelda Quilt

    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

    What a labor of love. I'm sure your husband is thrilled with it. I give you credit for seeing this one through to the end. I'm sure it seemed never-ending at some points. Again, great job and thanks for sharing.

    Nothing makes me happier than seeing 8-bit pixelated quilts from video games. You did a marvelous job. Thank you for sharing!

    Maybe someday I'll make my bro that Yoshi egg...

    I do really love my hubby, I'm always getting myself in too deep on projects for him. There was supposed to be a sweater back when I was knitting a lot and he still teases me about getting done one sleeve and a front and getting bored so I had to finish this one. Couldn't give him more ammo for teasing me with
