Brian Easton commissioned his mom to make this beautiful Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker quilt. From his Free Play post about this textile masterpiece:
The quilt took several months to finish and uses several different techniques. On my end the hardest part of the process was creating a black and white image with simplified design elements. After that I created several different colour schemes (some with the intention of making the quilt "easier" to make) and eventually settled on one that was similar to the original design. The black and white outline was then transferred to an overhead transparency and enlarged. From there the pieces were made while I played the waiting game and received tantalizing email updates somewhat akin to a reverse ransom demand as I saw bits and pieces of Link come together rather than fall apart.Link (Thanks, Mamie Rheingold!)
