W.i.P. - Yoshi 1.0

My appointment today went just swell. Thanks so much for keeping your fingers crossed! Think of me again on Thursday between 9am and 1pm UTC+1? Ta.

As I've got a moment to breathe before returning to my notes for Thursday, I thought I'd let you know of my inspiration for the Yoshi quilt. Follow the links to see the original sources.

I aim for a monochrome sky to make the background less busy but will otherwise stick with the pattern. Though I think I'll add another row of pixels to each side. I want the quilt to be really big and wide as M is nearly 2 metres tall and he deserves something that he can properly fit under.


I'm pretty sure that I should have enough fabric to add an egg to the back of the quilt, too. That'll be a cute addition.

I think it's time for an updated WIP list!

Wow, it's certainly shrunk a lot. What a pleasant feeling! I already know of a few projects which will enter the stage soon. Stay tuned.

Happy sewing!


  1. So glad it went well, will have fingers crossed for Thursday. Yoshi looks like a lot of fun!

  2. So glad it all went well - hoping for the best for the next one too!

    Love the plan for the Yoshi quilt! The egg on the back sounds like a great idea!

  3. EEP! I love your Yoshi quilt idea! I really want to make a Super Mario themed quilted project next year. I'm thinking something with boos might be fun. :)

  4. I think Yoshi and the egg will be a nice quilt.

  5. Yoshi's going to make a great quilt!

  6. Wow, yoshi is going to be pretty spectacular....

  7. Hi I would like to know what are the sizes of your small squares? I am in the process of making a hockey logo pixel quilt and I started off with 3 1/2 squares and they were too big for a queen size, so I cut them down to 3 inches, but they still look big! Can you help me? I appreciate it very much! Love your Yoshi by the way! :)

  8. I will wait for your reply , my e-mail address is csaganash@hotmail.com
    Thank you very much! :)
