I prefer it too!

Angela over at Cut to Pieces is hosting a Super Mario Brothers Quilt Along. Sounds like a lot of fun to me. Yesterday I went out and bought most of the fabrics required. I think I’ll have to make 2 sets though! 2 sons who both think this sounds great. That’s a lot of stitching! I’ve started washing my fabrics and can’t wait to slide a new blade into my rotary cutter. 🙂

Son number 1 thought we needed a Bowser, pictured above, for the quilt but this block is huge, perhaps if I find time I could make one up for the back. Only time will tell!

All requirements are listed and a there’s a Flickr group as well.

Yesterday I was also informed there’s a teacher evening planned for the beginning of October and my contribution needs to be basted and quilted. Oh so many projects and so little time.

Gotta fly, byeee.
