SMB Quilt Along: The Goomba
I thought I might show my mini block method that I used for the Goomba block. He's such a baddie!
I break up each pixelated grid into mini blocks that minimize the number of pieces and seams. There are two here that got switched, his cheeks, but I fixed that before sewing. The best part is that the features of each pixelated character are symmetric so there are lots of mini blocks that are reflections of each other. I also piece horizontal rows that are almost the entire width of the block and then add pieces on each end.
