So I think we have enough interest to do the quilt along! I hope you all are as excited as me. I’m still ironing out some details with fabrics and techniques but it is all coming together.
But I wanted to give you a sneak peak of the quilt.
Yes. It is the Super Mario Brothers.
Yes. It is a pixel style quilt with small squares.
Yes. I’m going to make this fun and doable! I PROMISE!
Yes. This is a sampler style that is perfect for a quilt along.
A huge shout out to my friend Tracey for her help with putting this pretty layout of my quilt design into this image!
Okay, I hope you all like it! I’m planning on making this a healthy twin size quilt so that you can make it for actual beds. I think it will be AWESOME!
Remember the beauty of this quilt is that we will make one block at a time. So this is totally doable. And if you hate one block, you can substitute another. Or if you just have time for one block, they make great pillows!
I also just wanted to show you a version with a grey sashing as well just to see another slightly different option.
I’ll have fabric amounts for you soon!
The plan will be to do one block a week…so a steady pace but not overwhelming. If you start it now you might actually have this done in time for Christmas. Let’s think ahead and motivate ourselves with a holiday!

so awesome! Can you tell us how big the blocks will finish? I'm hoping for tiny! 🙂 hehe…
I am sure this will be fun! I already made a toad wall hanging:
I definitely will sew one or two blocks for pillows/wall hangings.
I am so doing this! Looks awesome!
Omg. This will be truly awesome!!
I look forward to seeing all the pixtures….Count me out on this one but I will have seeing your work..
oh yeah…i've just gotta do this!
I am super excited about this! I am glad to have a legitimate reason to put Mario on my sidebar too! 😀
I am very excited about this QAL!! I am loving the idea of making pillows! They would be great in the game room!
I'm not a big Mario fan, but I might need t do a mushroom…
Just love it, I probably go for the pillow option as I am a beginner.
Cannot wait!! I have had these in my graph paper sketch pad forever and just haven't put them together…may have to add a Princess Peach block, just for fun :o)
Oh, it is on like Donkey Kong!!!! This is so awesome and I am totally in. How large will each block be?
I cannot handle how awesome this is. Truly.
My son would just love this!! I'm grabin' the button. Are you having a Flickr group too?
My heart just went pitter patter! OMG I'm in love! I'm going to do my best to keep up with this because as an 80s kid this rocks.
Yay!!!! I'm so excited. This will be awesome and now my son will love me forever! Can't wait to get started!
You and your new project enabling skills! Yes, my friend Amanda and I have decided we NEED to make this. NEED.
So awesome!!! I am going to make this for sure, then just have to decide who to give it to – DH or SIL. Probably my husband so I can still see it all the time! It'll be a nice upgrade for our "couch blankets" in the basement.
I'm super excited! Looks awesome! I like that you can adjust it to your own time and what you want to accomplish! I don't think I'll make the whole thing, but I will definitely have fun quilting along with most of them!! Thanks again!!!
i absolutely adore this!! is this doable for a beginner??
It should definitely be good for a beginner! The pieces will be small but everything is square. So it is very straight foward.
Oooh well I can't put the button on my blog or my best friend will know what I'm up to! He will absolutely love this, guaranteed…he just showed me a footstool tutorial for that a Mario Piranha Plant Ottoman made out of a bucket yesterday that he is excited about making..sigh!
The button is SO cute! Good work!
and thank you for my shout out.
The quilt's going to be SO cute… it almost makes me want to make one. 🙂
(Could you pixelate star wars legos for me in your "free" time? I wouldn't be able to resist that one)
I'm so doing this QAL. It will be my first! I fell in love from the first time you said Mario quilt and when I showed my hubby this design, he told me I had to make it! 🙂
I just might need to Quilt Along with you. Super adorable.
It sounds great, and looks great! But my first thought was that Luigi and Mario are not actually the same height….. oh well, anyone who complains just can't use the quilt! 😀
just think of it as a big Mario and a little Luigi. 😉
YAY!!! My husband is going to love this quilt! I started drafting a pattern to make one a while ago, but it'll be so much more fun to do it with a group!!
I am so in for making a pillow.
I know a little boy how is obsessed with Luigi!
Seriously, LOVE! I have to make quilts for my boys' beds and this would be PERFECT! I can't wait!!
My husband has decided this can be his hangover quilt (it's the only time he ever uses a quilt) so I'm in! Fab design!
Love it! I think I am totally going to do this.
I love mario since I was a child. I'm super excited!!!!, in fact, I think this is the best project ever!!!
Greetings from Santiago de Chile!
I wanted to thank you hands down for coming up with this quilt along. It will actually be the first one I will be doing. I am excited about this one because I have been pondering of what quilt to design or make for my step son.
I can't wait for the list! Another excuse to buy fabric! My Daughter will LOVE this!!
This will be a blast!
holy crap! I just found this QAL from another blog. I'm totally in. I"ve been thinking about a Mario quilt for a while, but haven't planned it out. I'm beyond excited!
Okay, I was waffling on this one but guess what, I'M IN!!! Yippe!! I think I can handle one block a week. 🙂
Umm…all I have to say is, "Heck yeah!" And I just found your site, bookmarked it, followed, so I'll be back 🙂
Yay I'm in! This will be the perfect Christmas present for my nephew since I was already planning to make him a quilt. Looking forward to it, thanks for putting this together!
I can't sew and never ever made a quilt. I would love to buy one of these for my daughter. Is there anyone out there who would be willing to make one to sell to me? If you are interested please email me firstname.lastname@example.org thanks
This is soooo awesome! Thank you for sharing these blocks with everyone. I'm obviously a little late for the quilt-along, but I'm definitely going to have to bookmark and pin this for when I'm ready to finally delve into quilting (I've only made 1 doll quilt, and hat's he extent of my quilting experience!).
