Jana’s “Mario Brothers” Quilt!!
Wow!! Just wow!! When Jana messaged me a picture of this quilt I was impressed for sure, but when it came for me to quilt, I was in awe. This entire pixelated quilt is 1” squares, and this quilt is quite big. I posted a picture of this before I started quilting it, on my Instagram...and it got a fun response. Now...I’m sharing the quilting.
The quilt pattern is by Nicoles Nerdy Knots, and used to be available on Craftsy. I heard recently Craftsy was taking some patterns off of their website, I’m not sure if this was one of them. I couldn’t find it anywhere. If you google pixelated Mario quilts, you may find some quilts that are similar.
I suggest to Jana the Good Vibrations design by Patricia Ritter, which is available at urbanelementz.com, for the quilting. Jana wanted to keep it simple, and not take away from the quilt itself. I love it!! The quilting was perfect at creating some texture and enhancing the quilt design. That is what I want with each quilt. Plus...I don’t know about you, but it reminded me of the old TVs back in the day, that sometimes had lines on them as you play Nintendo. Haha!!
I want to share these close ups, just so you can see all those 1” squares.
I used white 30 tex poly wrapped poly Perma Core A&E thread and 8020 cotton poly blend batting. The white thread blends nicely over all the dark fabrics. When I’m quilting an edge to edge design, I prefer lighter threads on darker fabrics than darker threads on lighter fabrics.
When it comes to quilts, this is seriously one of the coolest that I’ve ever quilted.
Have a super day!!
