Mario Quilt Is Done… Well, One Of Them

I’ve been running amok in my sewing room the past couple of weeks! I finished a throw size Zelda Quilt and a queen sized Zelda Quilt. Now, I finished a throw sized Mario Quilt, and I still have another throw sized Zelda quilt, and a full sized Mario Quilt. I had Comic Con 2 weeks ago, and I’m still getting my sewing room back in order! Now I have some 8-bit embroidery to drop off at a shop later today after work. No rest for the wicked, and there are none more wicked than me. On top of that, I’ve had two machines repaired st week. I guess I use them a bit much… I guess I really cannot argue with that.

Well, I’m off to my day job!

Wish me luck!

 

Super Mario Throw Pillow!

I made this Mario throw pillow for a customer! I even got some sky fabric for the background. I really want to make a whole quilt out of popart Marios. Like, in all different colors. One of these days. I’ve got three commissions ahead of that, so we’ll see.

I’ve Just Been Sick As A Dog, But I Still Made A Pillow

Man, this flu has hit me pretty hard. It’s like I’m short of breath after sewing for 5 minutes. This needs to be over quickly! In the mean time, I did make this gorgeous throw pillow! I even started work on my next commission quilt. I think it is going to be fabulous! Here are some pictures of the pillows, and later I’ll post the fabric for the new quilt.

I Finished A Triforce Throw Quilt… 2 More Before Christmas

 

I know I haven’t posted anything quilt related lately, but I’ve just been so busy. I just finished this the other night and I’m mailing it out today. Now tonight I have to make a Full size quilt top to mail out on Wednesday. Wish me luck!

Busy Day! I finished A Quilt, And Started Another One

I finished it! 3 More Quilts to go by Christmas! I started cutting the fabric for a throw size, so hopefully that will be done by Thursday, and then that leaves me 3 days for a quilt top, and a week for another queen size. I’m going to be running on empty and may not even set foot in my sewing room after the holidays for a bit. Wish me luck!

Quilting The Triforce – I Love Variegated Thread

I basted and started quilting the Triforce quilt last night. I was going to do the background first, and then the bird and Triforce afterwards, but I was too tired, so I just did the bird and Triforce. I took about one third the time of doing the background, so I end up getting to bed around 3:30am. I have to work at 9:45, so I might be a little tired today, but it is totally worth it! I’ll finish quilting the background tonight, and if I’m luck I can bind it as well, then wash and mail it out on Friday.

Question for my quliter friends: Do you wash your quilts before you give them away?

First Pokeball Quilt Block Is Done… Now Back To Zelda

One black down, and 3 to go. I really like the way this turned out. Next will be the great ball. Well, it might take me a while to finish. I have on the agenda for the weeks leading up to Christmas…

1) Quilt a top I already made

2) Throw size Zelda Quilt

3) Queen Size Tetris Quilt

4) Full size Zelda quilt top

So, there you have it! My list of things to do in three weeks! I know I can, I’ll just have to not be social until after the holidays!

2 New Etsy Listing For Mario Fans

As on this morning I have added Twin and Full Size Mario 8 bit quilts to my Etsy Shop. Here you can order the Twin Size, and here is the Full Size. I still have to work up a sample for the queen size which will include 9 blocks instead of 6, but that might have to wait until after the holidays. I think that one will include a bob-omb, boo, and I think a question block. We’ll see. I might have to base it on what colors I have readily available in my fabric stash. (I went a little crazy with the fabric shopping recently, but I should be set for quite a while…. I hope.)
