Metroid Charts - Samus & Metroid

metroid quilt final

Samus & Metroid
Charts to Chain Piece
Jennifer Ofenstein
Size varies based on size of patches used.


Please note, this is NOT a pattern for the entire quilt. These are charts to piece the two characters seen here with some additional suggestions and information. You can use this to make something similar to this quilt or use the charts for your own creations.

Keep scrolling for helpful hints and my homemade spray starch recipe!

Pre-cut your fabric squares to save time.
#metroid progress! #samus
I like to print my chart and then break it into smaller chunks so that I don’t get overwhelmed.
I start from the left and work my way across, marking off what I’ve done as I go so I don’t get lost.
Some tiny #chainpiecing! #metroidquilt
Chain piecing is EVERYTHING.
After a week of not much sewing I've made some good progress on the #metroidquilt! I'm keeping the wrap up a surprise until it's complete and gifted to @spleenarinobambino. I hope to have it ready to quilt today. #tinypiecing #solids #chainpiecing

I chain piece from the top down, keeping the threads between the rows intact so that nothing will be out of place. When the rows are together, go back and sew together the horizontal seams, matching seams.
It's time to make #homemade spray starch! My preferred recipe is 1/4 cup liquid starch, 2 oz vodka, 10 drops of lavender and approximately 4 cups of distilled water. #spraystarch
Use my homemade spray starch for a smooth, flat finish. I find this especially useful when working with solids. Recipe adapted from one shared years ago by my friend Linda.
  • 1/4 cup liquid starch
  • 2 oz plain/non-flavored vodka (If you don’t have vodka and don’t want a whole bottle, a sample size bottle works great!)
  • 10 – 12 drops of lavender
  • approximately 3.5 cups of distilled water in a 32 oz spray bottle
