Super Mario Brothers Quilt Finish
Last night I finished a Super Mario Brothers themed quilt, for Dominic, the young grandson of dear friend and co-worker Thomasina W.
Super Mario Brothers
For Dominic, young grandson of friend Thomasina W.
After a fruitless online search for Super Mario Brothers fabric that interested me, I had a small piece of theme fabric printed to order at Spoonflower.com.
A few weeks ago I shared a post on Facebook about a website where you could turn a photo into a quilt pattern. The featured photo was one of the Mario Brothers (http://tinyurl.com/l358za9). Thomasina came by my desk and told me that her grandson would like a quilt like that because he likes Super Mario Brothers. That got me thinking and within a few minutes I decided to make a quilt for Dominic for his upcoming birthday.
Thomasina and I agreed that the quilt pattern, with its many pieces, would be too complicated. I tried to find Super Mario Brothers themed fabric and ended up having a fat quarter printed to order at Spoonflower.com. I took the little bit of fabric and made a simple design around it. I'm happy with the way it turned out.
Tomorrow is Dominic's 7th birthday. Thomasina will give the quilt during their family get-together. Happy Birthday, Dominic!
