Ready? It’s Star time!
Oh that shiny yellow star. I can just see it gleaming elusively in the landscape as I desperately try to catch it. To know that for a brief period of time my Mario would become invincible and fast, destroying all the enemies all the way. Plus there is that cool color changing flashy thing he does and that music that increases your anxiety with each second warning you that your power will soon run out. Good times.
It’s Block #8 in our QAL and I’ll admit that other than cutting up the fabric and drawing my grid, I do not have this one started. But I don’t want to hold any of you back.
Once again, I’m blown away by YOUR serious creativity! Check out the BACK (can you believe this is the back?!) of Simone of Local Honey Crafts’ Mario Quilt. She created a huge Mario Kart Mario complete with gold coins. Can we say awesome?!
