I recently finished a 72x86 pixeled Bowser quilt.    All-in-all I'm happy with how it turned out, though I think that it would have been better had the black and orange fabric had less of a pattern.    I do love the background fabric though... it's so Bowser!  
I also decided to fill in the empty top-right corner with a bit of applique.   I hate applique but want to learn how to do it so I need to start somewhere!  I'm getting better at it, but still need to work on it- just like I need to work on getting my backs to lie flat.   I seem to be good at getting a few bunches in the back.
The fabric on the back is a bed sheet.  I'm a bargain shopper and always have to check out the clearance aisle and to my delight I found Mario sheet sets discounted.  How awesome is that?
Once again I used the program that my husband wrote for me to calculate the amount of yardage needed for the quilt.   It so beats doing it by hand, or rather head!
For the applique letters I used Mario Bros. font that I download.   I printed out the letters on a piece of paper and then used them as a pattern to cut the fabric and heat 'n' bond.
