Gold medal?

OK Luigi is my first block from the Super Mario quilt-along to be finished so I suppose he could get a gold medal but he isn't perfect... some of the seams don't match perfectly so.... maybe not gold.

Never mind, I am happy I have finished the first block. I didn't use foundation in the end but it worked well enough. It was fun to make if a bit time consuming, but then sewing together 324 tiny 1.5' squares would be anyway...I had never pieced a block made of such tiny squares before so I was a bit apprehensive but I enjoyed the process, took it as slowly as necessary, and I am happy enough with my first block. Well, I am only 3 blocks behind in the quilt-along now!


  1. I think this block looks fabulous!
    That certainly was a LOT of work and tons of little pieces to assemble.

  2. I love it! Postage stamps take work, but are worth it. Are all the backgrounds going to be yellow? It looks great!

  3. This looks like a lot of fun, but I'm a bit nervous about making such a lot of small pieces into something good.

  4. I'm glad you tried it and I think you did a great job.
