Mario is always on the hunt for his Princess, but she always seems to be in another castle. But it turns out she might actually be taking up residence in your castle thanks to this lovely Princess Peach quilt.
Every time I went to my grandmother’s house growing up she was always working on a quilt of one sort or another. She offered to make me quilts multiple times but I didn’t care anything for handmade blankets back in the day.
In all honesty, it’s been a while since I dusted off my original NES copy of The Legend of Zelda, but it’s still one of the all time classic video games, IMHO. But even if you don’t play the game regularly, you could have a daily reminder of Link’s adventures thanks to this awesome Legend of Zelda quilt.
No matter what kind of geek you are or what you are into, you will find something to love on this awesome knitted blanket. Ravelry member Leilaniac designed it in Excel and then knitted it with Shibui Knits sock yarn.

Just because you’re all grown up and have a nursery to decorate doesn’t mean that you can’t sneak in a little touch of your gamer style in your tot’s room. For starters, why not deck out their crib with one of these fun 8-bit quilts?
So let’s say you have twenty or so awesome moments in your Halo 3 career preserved in screenshots. Yeah, the time you stuck that guy right in the face? Remember when you snatched up that flag right in the middle of heavy fire from the red team?
There’ve been a lot of bad-ass 8-bit quilts spread across the Internet, but usually, they’re dedicated to one game, serving as a showcase for a single NES-era memory. Not so with this quilt; this bad boy is more about the entire experience, so it’s fitting that it’s called “THE” Nintendo Quilt.
While the daytime is warm and summery around these parts, it doesn’t stop me from catching the occasional chill at bedtime. So what better way to keep warm but with a Space Invaders quilt?

Back in the day, Pole Position was one of my all-time favorite arcade games. Not only was it the first full-color POV racing game, it had some of the most groundbreaking graphics in its time. With today’s photorealistic racing games like the Gran Turismo and PGR series, it’s amazing how far we’ve come.
