    Wow. That's awesome. Brings back memories too
    *I I think however you quilt it you should try to keep the quilting geometric rather than organic, because it will accentuate the geometric feel of the quilt top......does that make sense?

    I would stiple or meander with the same color thread as what's being quilted. For example, I'd quilt white in the cloud, avoiding the blue within the cloud, and red thread on red fabric, ect. It all depends if you want the piecing to stand out, or the quilting.

    Good job, by the way. Your GS will love it!
    Go forth and sew!

    I would have to agree with bri1977. I was actually thinking diagonal crosshatch, just to keep the geometrics of the quilt. Usually I would have said meandering or stippling, but, this one says cross-hatching to me. Whatever you decide, it will be beautiful. BTW your quilt is astounding.
    Quilting is my PASSION not my pass time.

    What a fantastic quilt!! I love video games, one of my 4 hobbies. Your grandson is a lucky lil dude.

    Not sure how I would quilt it, maybe stippling but with sqaure turns instead of curves. I guess more like etch-a-sketch type turns.

    My son says, "WOW!!" Can't quite get the font large enough to represent how cool he thinks it is. Is there a pattern for that? How in the world did you make it? It is just too cool. I like the idea of stippling with more square turns.

    I downloaded pictures and enlarged them and then took a ruler and made squares making them 2" squares and then put it all together-you can look at the quilt and see it. Its hard work but I believe my grandson will love it on his birthday next Saturday

    Your quilt is great. My son (who is almost 21) is sitting here and I showed it to him. He said that it was awesome!

    You can stitch in the ditch and keep the lego effect....but I bet you don't want to do that! What if you did the blue square with by group even numbers.
