Hubby's birthday present

I think I know what I'm going to get/make Ryan for his birthday in June (wow, I NEVER plan this far in advance for any gift!). I came across someone on Flickr that was an instant contact. She's creative, she's unique, and she loves to share tutorials for the things she makes! As I was going through her photos I came across a quilt that she'd designed with Mario on it! It was so adorable and clever! After searching, I came across more people who'd made mario quilts and I'm convinced that this is what I want to make for Ryan's birthday! Here's the tutorial from the original quilt that I saw, and here are some pictures of the quilt finished (isn't the girl adorable?)

And if you go to Flickr and search "Mario Quilt" you'll find more examples of Mario quilts that were done by other people. They're so much fun! Ryan is a big video gamer and I know he'd get a huge kick out of this. Not to mention, he likes to "snuggle" on the couch when he plays, and I know he's love to have an awesome meaningful quilt just for him to snuggle under! I'm really excited for this! I can't wait! It'll probably take me until June to make, but I'll keep you updated on the progress :-)
