Default pixelated picture quilt progress

I thought at the beginning that this was going to be a difficult quilt, 324 pieces in each 18 inch block. But I was so wrong! Here are the first 2 blocks. I can do one block in about 3 hours, but that includes fabric cutting and interruptions from the hubby (he seems to think he needs to eat). Hopefully the remaining 10 blocks go just as fast.

Interesting. Are they characters from a video game?

These are all characters from the video game "Super Mario Brothers"....one I have to admit that I spent many hours playing. This is for the 5yr grandson who loves the game too. They aren't QAYG, just regular blocks....but...each 1.5" square is fused to interfacing with 1.5" grid printed on it. Then you sew the seams. It is so easy and fast, considering how many squares are in each block. The first block (one up mushroom) was a learning process, so it isn't as nice looking...but I don't think it will be noticeable once the quilt is together and quilted. I think I am going to use a clear/transparent thread to quilt so I don't interfere with the pictures.

Great start, the quilt is going to be amazing! My 2 grandsons are really into Minecraft and I've been trying to figure out how to make them each a quilt. Thanks for the inspiration!

Looks interesting. Isn't that just like a man--he probably wants 3 meals a day, too. lol
