Video games and quilting sound like they should mix about as well as oil and water, but lately, they seem more like the delicious blend of chocolate and peanut butter. First we had the Q*Bert quilt, followed by the Galaga quilt and more recently the Legend of Zelda quilt. The latest mash-up between games and sewing features a fun Super Mario theme.
Designed and sewn by a Crafster contributor going by the brilliant screen name “iddosteveperry”, the quilt features pixelated icons from the 8-bit Nintendo series. Each of the game characters’ bitmaps was painstakingly assembled from 1.5-inch squares, then combined into this enormous 8′ x 8′ quilt.
While it doesn’t feature the likeness of Donkey Kong, it is big enough that he could be sleeping underneath.
