I made a quilt for our first baby nibling! Their nursery theme is based off of the Kirby video games

The pixels don't really match the grid as well as I'd hoped, but all-in-all not too bad for my second quilt ever, especially since I finished it in less than a week!

@mlemweb much better than my second quilt! I love the concept. And you’ll have more chances to make quilts as they get bigger.


I'm glad it turned out ok in the end, there was definitely a point when one of those clouds was pinned to my finger and I just sat there with a cloud stuck to my hand thinking "I have no idea what I'm doing!"

I also know that by making a quilt for the first means that I'm committing to quilts for all of the subsequent niblings too, so plenty of time to improve :)

@mlemweb I found it really interesting to mentally reverse-construct as I looked at it!


Well, since I don't know what I'm doing, I probably didn't follow any established method. Kirby himself is patchwork 'pixels' but the background is zoomed out (from a pixel-art standpoint) so it's mostly just pieces with turned hems stacked on top of the sky fabric.


I also did the laziest top-stitching possible, but it does add to the pixelated appearance

@mlemweb it does! I have only made 2 pixelated quilts and they’re very hard to quilt. I did linda the second time.


Pixel-quilt seems so straight forward and easy in theory, then you start doing it and realize how unforgiving that grid is

@mlemweb “no too bad”, yep, not too bad! Looks great to me, nice.

@mlemweb Congrats on finishing the quilt and for the imminent nibling arrival.

@mlemweb Well done. Try and sew together Waddle Dee the next time.

Maybe Waddle Dee will be for their next kid
