This is part of an ongoing series of posts for The Super Mario Brothers Quilt Along I'm hosting here on my blog. You can join in at any time! You will find the links to all steps in my top bar. Also please feel free to join the Super Mario Brothers Quilt Along Flickr Group.

Ready? It's Luigi time!
I'm partially through my block and you can see my progress...I opted to finish up that new quilt for Caitlyn (and yes it is done! pictures soon!) so I got a little behind on my schedule. But given that Luigi and Mario are the same except for the shirt and hat color, you will all get the point. ;) Although I need to check and see if I used the right green fabric. I think my instagramed photo might be throwing me off a bit here.
And can I just say that I love the Flickr group and all the creativity over there. I jump up and down each time I see a new block pop up! (I'm channeling my inner Luigi...I always liked Luigi better because of the green...yes, I'm totally shallow like that)
Stephanie already finished her Mario AND Luigi blocks and she rather geniusly flipped Luigi to face the opposite direction as Mario. Love that.
I know that some people are talking about making one of the fellas a jumping version of himself as well for more variety. I love that idea too!
Be sure to add your creations to the flickr group so we can all see how we are doing!
You can find all of the PDF's for the Super Mario Brothers QAL available HERE.
Now for the giveaway!
I know that you don't all have access to the stabilizer that I am using...It has been rather frustratingly hard to find. But Pellon has been lovely to work with and offered up a giveaway for one lucky reader of a yard of the Pellon Stick-n-wash and 2 yards of their rayon batting!
And just to help us out more, they have arranged for a coupon code with McCalls for those purchasing a bolt of the Pellon Stick -n - wash. Use the coupon code 'PELLON542' on Shops@McCalls for a total 20% discount off the 10yd board of Pellon® 542 Stick-n-Washaway™. Customers can input the code in their shopping cart, and the discount will be confirmed and reflected immediately in the cart total.
I hope that some of you are able to take advantage of the coupon code! Even if you don't want the whole bolt, perhaps a couple of people could split a bolt. The flickr group would be a great place to set that up.
Especially if you wanted to help out an international friend as Pellon does not manufacturer internationally and McCalls does not ship there either. (Contact me if you want more information on this)
For a chance to enter the giveaway for the 1 yard of Pellon Stick n Wash and 2 yards of rayon batting, we'll keep it simple today.
Leave me a comment letting me know your very favorite way to see a quilt photographed. Do you like to see people using the quilt? The whole picture of the quilt? A random close up shot of the fabrics? A cat lying on the quilt? (How many people just smiled and how many just shuddered?!)
