Charlotte's Wall Quilt

If at this point you don't realize that I love the Princess Bride, you do now. The plan started out completely different though and after thinking about it and finding good images of the movie online I had to get it out of me. It was hard to decide on the features of the map as there are two official versions that are completely different from each other. The original book and then the game and newer editions of the book but nowhere online had a nice high resolution image I could copy.

Full Wall Quilt - Princess Bride
We start off on Buttercup's Farm, I love the pig and chickens. Lots of painting and then thread painted (I think that's the term). Also the perspective changes from a sort of bird's eye view to a more frontal one.  One of the maps had small bridges so I kept them in.

Next she gets kidnapped and taken up the Cliff's of Insanity.

Princess Bride: Guilder Castle

Where Indigo and Fezzik fight the man in black. Yes, that's a butt in the upper right window. I don't know why I did it, but I had to. Also, rocks are hard to paint so they look like rocks.

Princess Bride: A Battle of Wits

A battle of wits and down the ravine.

Princess Bride: The Fire Swamp

Into the Fire Swamp where they meet the R.O.U.S.'s. I think they look too cute though.

Princess Bride: Florin Castle

Prince Humperdink steals her away from Wesley where he is taken to the Zoo of Death. Indigo and Fezzik rescue him slightly alive and take him to see Miracle Max.

Princess Bride: Miracle Max

Once mostly alive they grab the wheelbarrow and cloak and set Fezzik on fire inside of Florin Castle. They rescue Buttercup and ride away on four white horses.
