    Zelda quilt

    Just in time for Christmas. Just pulled this Zelda quilt out of the machine and delivered it today. The entire time I was working on this quilt, I thought it was for a grown man found out when delivering it it is for a four year whose name is Link.

    While delivering this quilt to a bar during trivia night, tonight, I had a lady ask about the pieces in white that form the circle. And when I told her Ďno they were not made from a punch and all cut out by handí she was a little surprised yet impressed. People are often amazed with a quilters skill set.

    These young adults now want to take my quilting information (or business card so to speak) to Comic-Con and pass it around because they think I could make money doing these style of quilts. Flattering but I donít have that kind of time especially if I ever wan to to quilt for myself again. lol! Enjoy the photos. You canít see the quilting details very well in the overall photo so I have added the close ups as well.

    Merry Christmas Everyone 🎄 and Happy New Year 🎊! I hope you all have a blessed holiday season!

    Nice work on the quilt. I wouldn’t have guessed it’s for a four year old either.

    Ditto on the above!
    For a 4 yr. old? I'm still making little bunnies, kitties and puppies for 4 yr. olds!

    WOW what meticulous work. Non-quilters have no idea the time and effort something with this much detail takes. I'm with you........no thanks in doing it for a business and I love applique and quilting details, but only for family or special people in my life. Even though I have no idea the game this refers to, I can appreciate the beauty and work!

    VEry beatiful and rich in symbolism. I know nothing about Zelda except that my youngest son used to play it on his Gameboy. The quilt makes me think it is a druid cape or tapestry- has that quality of religious significance. If you decided to made a business of this, you can find ways to have the items die cut and hire others to help you sew it together. It really is a high quality work of art, maybe worthy of your consideration to make a business of marketing and selling other quilts like it.

    Your work is great. I am sure the person who commissioned it will be thrilled.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    So very interesting and unusual. I can see where ComiCon folks might be interested.

    The symbols as relating to the game are probably well copyrighted and protected vigilantly?
    Zero problem for a private project, headache to sell publicly.

    I never want to do for work what I do for the love of it.

    As my son and I were leaving the parking lot that night, this is exactly what I told him. No reproductions with being in violation of copyright laws. No way I would set a booth up at Comic-Con plus I donít want to have to hire help to fill orders. Iíll just stick to my own stack of projects and there is already plenty on my to do list.

    I agree that is why I was quite surprised when I realized this was for a four year old. I think itís more of mom thing. But as long as everyone is happy. Iím happy.
