Super Mario Brothers Quilt Along & BOM - Block #5

Welcome to our Super Mario Brothers BOM Club and Quilt Along!  Each month for the next year, we'll be releasing a free quilt block pattern to make this super fun Mario Quilt!  The release schedule and more information about our Block of the Month club is available here.  Fabric kits are available for purchase in our etsy shop and here on our blog.

Well, August is here already, and we've.  We've been in the midst of a heat wave here in the Sacramento Valley.  Let me tell you ... sweaty legs sticking to chairs does not an ideal sewing environment make!  I managed to persevere, however, and finished my block [relatively] on time.  Our block this month is a fun little 1-UP mushroom, happily finishing at a very manageable 18" x 18" - the perfect size for a mini-quilt or throw pillow.

We're using the fusible backing construction method and it really helped with those teeny, tiny squares.  If you're sewing along with us, make sure that you use a 1.5" grid for this block and the remaining border blocks!!

Kits (with or without the fusible backing) are available below.
