Today I managed just enough sewing time to finish the first block for the Super Mario quilt, the star.
As I mentioned in my last post, I drew out some pixelated images from Super Mario and then just set about randomly piecing the block together. Some pieces are a finished 1" square and other pieces are 10" long strips. It's very liberating to piece in this manner, picking and choosing what goes where.
The block is about 17", it needs squaring off and sashing.
I think I'm going to tackle the big man himself next, MARIO... in his own words 'here we go!'.
