lifesquared was even kind enough to share some details about how he or she made the quilt.

“da da da DA! You got a Link Quilt. My first ever quilt, my mom even had to teach me how to use the sewing machine!

  • Step One: I created the pattern in excel based on a few sprites online and in screenshots, and used it to figure out how much of each color material I needed.
  • Step Two: I bought fabric and cut what seemed like a million squares.
  • Step Three: I put these into rows and sewed each row together horizontally.
  • Step Four: I sewed each row together, trying to line up each square. (You can tell I dropped the ball on that part.)
  • Step Five: I made a border and chose the back fabric and quilted it

It’s a lot more work than I expected – especially since I made it a full queen size instead of a small one – but well worth the effort since I’m a huge fan.”

    Does anyone know where Dr Link went? I miss it.

    • The Doctor

      Yeah, that and Would You Rather haven’t been around in a while.

    • YoshiFan101

      I guess there haven’t been many characters to do on Dr. Link, for the other one I have no idea

  • DestroyerOfClockTown

    Most excellent, my friend.

  • XTC

    It appears to be ready for cuddles and naps. It is dangerous to nap alone. Take this.

    • True

      Why is it dangerous to nap alone, you may ask? One word: BEN

      • XTC

        All my fears have been realized in three letters.

        • True


    • TheMightyDekuWarrior

      I’m sure Link would be a nice person to take a nap with. Well, if you want to take a really long one.

      • XTC

        As long as he doesn’t get too courageous. Haha

        • True


        • TheMightyDekuWarrior

          …!! NOW I NOW WHAT THE TRIforce of Courage means…

  • Mem

    Link from original LoZ and 3 Triforces? It’s still a great quilt and I want one, but I just thought I’d point that out.

  • Masterwarrior

    awesome quilt

  • StationaryBomb

    Kid did a good job, all he needs to do is rinse and repeat if he wants big money :P

  • The Doctor

    I can’t look at that quilt without being reminded of this tune:

  • Guest

    Sorry for posting this here, but where could I got to anonymously submit an article for ZD’s consideration? Or where could I go to get an answer to this question?

    • The Doctor

      Select the category “News and Articles.” I’m not sure if they’ll accept an article, but you can try. That’s mainly for if you find a mistake in an article, or if you have any Zelda news to offer that the staff may have missed.

  • YoshiFan101

    woah, I can’t do that if I got 5 years to do it O.O

  • TheMightyDekuWarrior

    The Quilt Mask gives you the power of being a Quilt… Why? Because, that’s why!

    • StationaryBomb

      Great for stealth missions :O

      • BOB

        but he can get stepped on! :/. and then it would be game over.

    • Ghirahim

      That made me think, why can’t you merge into the floor in ALBW?

      • TheMightyDekuWarrior

        Why would Link need to do that? To look up girls’ skirts? lol

        • Ghirahim

          Well, think of how easy the stealth maze would be in ALBW.

  • Farore’s Chosen

    it’s cute
    Da da da DA-you got the quilt, it will keep you cozy in winter

  • CrimsonAnna

    I would actually hand it on the wall, like a tapestry, I admire the work put into it =)
