How to make a Super Mario Quilt
My grandson is obsessed with Mario and Luigi. I searched for a pattern for a Mario Quilt and finally found one. This pattern consisted of 2 1/2” squares. There were a ton of squares; however, when I saw his face light up, it made it all worth it. Read on to learn how to make a Super Mario Quilt.
As always, I recommend a high quality fabric. That is, it needs to have a tight weave. (not loosely woven). Your quilt will last a long time if you use a high quality fabric. The fabric needs to be 100” cotton. This quilt finishes at 48” x 72”.

Supplies for Super Mario Quilt:
Your choice of fabric
Cut your pieces for the Super Mario Quilt:
You can use a good pair of fabric scissors or use a rotary cutter with a rotary mat and a quilting ruler.
Cut 2 1/2” strips of material from selvage to selvage, cutting the selvages off.
Next, cut the strips into 2 1/2” squares. Cut the amount needed per color. The number of squares per color is listed in the pattern. You can find a free PDF with pattern and instructions in my resource library. Read to the bottom of this post about how to get the password.
Sew your Super Mario Quilt:
Use 1/4” seam allowances. Sew the squares together by row using a straight stitch. Start by chain stitching the squares by two’s. Then sew the pairs together. Follow the pattern and sew each row together. Iron the odd rows to the right and the even rows to the left. This will make it easier to lock the seams together. Subsequently, sew the columns together.
You can add a border if desired.
Layer the quilt with backing, batting and the top. Use a spray adhesive to keep them together. Quilt as desired. I stitched in the ditch. Bind the edges.
I downloaded this pattern for free from embellished designs. I have been unable to locate them since, so I wanted to share their design. It’s so stinking cute! Thank you to the Bells.
