Super Mario Bros QAL

So I've decided to do this QAL, I'm undecided if I'm going to make every block and I'm not going to beat myself up if I don't stay on track.  These blocks will happen if they happen!  Angela recommends Michael Miller Couture Cottons but, they don't really exist around my parts but I can get Kona so that's what I'm going with!

Here is the list of colors I've chosen so far with the MM colors in parenthesis:
White (bright white)
Aqua  (aqua)
Corn Yellow (canary or sun)
Navy (denim)*
Eggshell (cream or tan)
Black (black)
Chocolate (cappuccino)

*Kona also has a denim color as well, I might nix the navy and go for a brighter blue, the navy is too close to the black for my liking at the moment.  

Also, Robin at Crafty Musings said she's going to use a Sulky stabilizer rather than the recommended Pellon.  I can't find the 542 around me to save my soul and certainly don't want to order a whole bolt of it at close to $90 for something I might not do every block for.

I spent this afternoon cutting a bunch of 1.5" squares.  I'm going to guess I cut close to 1000 of the buggers today!


  1. Fun! I can't wait to see your blocks start coming together. :) I decided to just go with my stash for fabrics-- I think all but one are Kona solids. I'm chompin' at the bit for my stabilizer to appear on my doorstep-- I wanna get stitchin'!!! :)

  2. Hi Audrey, please pass the word:

  3. You can do it without a stabilizer as long as you have an accurate 1/4 inch seam. You can check out my postage stamp quilt under WIPs. It is possible. I also modified my Mario and Luigi so I don't have to make another postage stamp quilt. Good Luck! :)
