This month’s Mario QAL block is the Star. On his own, he’s the perfect size for a mini-quilt or throw pillow. And, with only 324 squares, he’s a happy little break from piecing those giant first two blocks – I KNOW, right? … channeling my best inner “Monica” this morning …
While piecing this block, I did manage to discover an invaluable attachment for my new beast of a sewing machine!
This is the biggest seam guide I’ve ever seen, but let me tell you that once I had it installed, I could really fly! It wouldn’t work too well with pinned blocks, but with projects like this where you’re just straight-stitching along the edge of the fusible backing … it works like a dream!
My little guy popped in to help finish up the last block … happy momma … ♥♥♥♥
