My son, Tony, loves to play games. For years I would ask him if he wanted a quilt and he always said he wanted a Mario quilt. He even drew me a quilt with elaborate blocks. I told him I could never make that quilt. One day he said he wanted a Luigi quilt. I said I don't have a pattern. He said he could get me a pattern. He sat down at the computer and typed in "16 bit Luigi or 8 bit Luigi," I'm not sure which one. Up popped a picture of what you see here. It took maybe 30 seconds to find it. "Squares," I think I can make that quilt. It's been started for several years now. Yesterday I finished it. I love it so much I may not let him have it!! lol
Closeup of the detailed quilting on my Luigi.
I wanted to surround Luigi with all blue. Tony said no, he needs to be on bricks. They have turned out to be my favorite part of the quilt.
Tony wanted a coin. The colors are not true, but here is a close up.
It took about a month to quilt this.
Notice the hair and mustache. The mustache has mustache shaped quilting, but it is hard to see in the black.
The back is a busy print that hides all my thread color changes.
