Super Mario Quilt Top 1/2 Done!

Well... I would have gotten it over half way done, but I got distracted by this bright, shiny, new sewing machine! My husband bought me an early birthday present of a new Janome HD1000 sewing machine and I'm in love with it! I played around with the tension and dropping the feed dogs (something I've never been able to do on a machine before) for a couple hours and then got to sewing the Shy Guy character square.

Unfortunately the Shy Guy is still only 1/2 done, but I'll be able to finish it up this weekend. Otherwise, I've got 12 full character squares out of 24 completed! It's been very slow going, but now that I have my new machine I'm going to be sewing non-stop! I can't believe how smooth it runs! And, having the new machine is going to give me some accountability to keep sewing and get this quilt finished just in time for hot summer weather. :) (Maybe we'll have to blast the A/C to use it!!) Anyway, happy Friday and happy crafting!


  1. Oh, how fun to have a new machine! Quilts are always in season at my house. Good luck on finishing yours this weekend!

  2. Wow, that looks like a LOT of work. It's adorable, though. Someone is going to be very happy to receive / use that quilt! Congrats on the new machine!

  3. Awesome! I know a little guy at my house that would love that! Looks great!

  4. How cool!! My son would go nuts! :)

  5. Your quilt is coming along amazingly - I love it!! And how lucky you are to have a wonderful new machine! Whoop whoop!!

  6. Those are awesome blocks. Did you have to draw them all out on graph paper? They look perfect. Congrats on the new machine.

    1. Pretty much. I actually used excel since I was using computer screen shots to look at the characters to plan things out anyway. You can see the whole screen shot of my excel document on my first Mario Quilt post.


I love your comments and questions. Feel free to drop me a line!!
