I knew I wanted a Mario/Sonic theme, but I didn't know how to go about it, so I turned to the internet and found projects to work from.
Step 1: Materials
-The batting is a compact, polyester batting.
-The backing is made with cotton fabric made specifically to be quilt backing (it's 108" wide, rather than 44" or 60")
Instruments I used:
-Ironing board (optional, but very useful)
-Lots and lots of pins
-Safety pins and a few pieces of tape
-Light colored pencils
