The Quilt

I have had this project kicking around my house for... almost a year. Yikes. You know those projects that you think will be no sweat and then at some point you pull away and think "holy mother... what have I gotten myself into??"

Well this is what happened to me when I began a Super Mario quilt. Have I ever mentioned that I have NEVER made a quilt? Have I ever mentioned that I'm really only kind of OK with sewing a straight line with my sewing machine... sometimes?

It all began with this adorable blanket from Instructables (via One Pretty Thing). Well there was also a pattern for all the little squares to make the cute 8-bit Super Mario.

Adorable right? I wish I could knit. But I can't... so I thought I would quilt instead!

How hard could it be?

Well... stay tuned.

I can't wait to see what you're doing with this! I can't sew at all, and I really wish I could. Kudos to you for taking this project on!
