Nintendo Quilt – Shy Guy

Another super cute block that turned out fabulous! I wanted a red Shy Guy to match with the rest of my Nintendo Quilt, but the nice thing about this design is that he really can be most any color. I used Aurifil 50wt cotton thread for stitching on his mask so it would blend in more. The rayon thread I normally used was too shiny in my test piece, in my opinion. While cutting the holes for the mask was tedious, it was worth it to get the look I was going for. The red piece is solid underneath, with black stitching for the eyes and mouth added before the white.
