Video Game Quilt Patterns

No. 029 — The Plumber and The Monkey

Layout 1

The Plumber (based on Super Mario Bros.)
In the decades since his first Sisyphian pursuit of a huge barrel-chucking gorilla, Mario’s legacy has built into mythic status. It was inevitable that some glorious day his epic battles with the infamous goombas and formidable (for turtles, at least) koopa troopas would be immortalized in that most ancient of media, the Quilt. Finished quilt measures 64″ x 64″ (162.5 x 162.5 cm).

The Monkey (based on Donkey Kong)
Donkey Kong! In a quilt! Want to snuggle with a big gorilla? Finished quilt measures 64″ x 64″ (162.5 x 162.5 cm).

No. 030 — The Alien Hordes and The Racecars

Layout 1

The Alien Hordes (based on Galaga)
Relive the action, the excitement. Gather a pocketful of quarters and head to your living room to relax under the 8-bit glory of the arcade classic Galaga brought back to Earth as a quilt. Travel in space and time without leaving your couch! This quilt is fully compatible with the XBox 360, Wii, PlayStation III, all high-definition televisions, most models of fireplace, and a wide variety of good books. Finished quilt measures 60″ x 60″ (152.4 x 152.4 cm).

The Racecars (based on Pole Position)
Recall the wind in your hair, the tang of smoking rubber on asphalt, the heat of your exploding Formula-1 racer as you wipe out again, and agin, and again against a billboard or into another car in this classic and hair-pullingly difficult archetype of the modern racing genre, Atari’s Pole Position. Not intended for use while driving. Finished quilt measures 65″ x 65″ (165 x 165 cm).

No. 031 — The Hero and The Brother

Layout 1

The Hero (based on The Legend of Zelda)
The Legend of Zelda may have introduced an entire generation to the joy of colorful worlds of monsters and heroes filled with melodies of bleeps and bloops, all contained in a little plastic box connected with wires to the TV. Bosses and Triforces, dungeons and new swords, secret doors and endless maps; these inspired fear and joy beyond anything a 256×224 set of pixels wavering on an ancient CRT had any right to do.  Octorok and Leever threaten Link amidst the rocky Overworld’s bushes and water, as a Darknut patrols in his Underworld dungeon. Finished quilt measures 64″ x 64″ (162.5 x 162.5 cm).

The Brother (based on Super Mario Bros.)
In the decades since his first Sisyphian pursuit of a huge barrel-chucking gorilla, Mario’s legacy has built into mythic status. It was inevitable that some glorious day his epic battles with the infamous goombas and formidable (for turtles, at least) koopa troopas would be immortalized in that most ancient of media, the Quilt.  In this smaller sibling of The Plumber quilt pattern, Mario finds a Fire Flower — and prepares to power up with fireball-flinging flower power! Finished quilt measures 40″ x 50″ (101 x 127 cm).
