Just Starting: Super Mario Bros. Quilt Along

Just in time for a day off that I could devote (somewhat) to sewing, my fabrics for the Super Mario Bros Quilt Along at Cut to Pieces arrived!  Angela hasn’t quite started on her tutorial, but I couldn’t wait to see how they’d turn out.  In my day off, I was able to cut the squares for one mushroom block …

and got a good bit of it sewn together.

It seems to shrink so much when sewn!

I suspect that Angela’s tutorial will use an incredibly time saving method of fusing and sewing entire strips at once, but I’m trying to do without the expensive interfacing.  You pay one way or another though, in time or money, so I could see myself joining completely and giving in to the interfacing she recommends.  For now, I’m just enjoying the process and the resulting cuteness!

  1. Wow, that really does shrink quite a bit. Looks great! I have this on my to do later list and I’m pretty sure I will be using stabilizer because I know my seams tend to get a bit off. I might just use some light weight instead of the wash away depending on the price difference.

    • I’m still working away at this slower method without the stabilizer. It’s working, but I bet stabilizer would speed it up tremendously! They blocks are so cute though, it keeps me going!
