speaking of nintendo.. today at the sewing and knitting café, a former "sewing-class student" of mine dropped by to get some help with a pillow she was working on. the pillow was quilted using a basic square pattern, where the colours shape the 1up-mushroom from supermario brothers. i fell in love instantly, and just had to share it with you. i think you might find a red mushroom in my couch some day, too. i think this is a great idea if you want to start quilting, but you´re not quite sure where to start. just find a simple picture in pixels, and use it as a pattern. it´s simple, fun and you can use all of those tiny left over pieces, that is too small for anything else.
