Luigi

Our friend, Tom (You remember Tom, right?), has been wanting a Luigi quilt to match Andrew’s Mario quilt for quite a while. For his birthday, we purchased the fabric and I got all of the squares cut. I put the top together over the long Labor Day weekend.

It’s a little bigger than Andrew’s because I used 5″ squares and Andrew’s has like 4.25″ squares…that just means smaller borders. 🙂 While I was getting fabric for the borders of this quilt, I also picked up some fabric for a curtain for Tom’s new apartment. He finally moved downtown and is only a few blocks from us. His apartment is technically a studio, but the bedroom is a separate room but there is no door. So I’m making a curtain.

The roll is Roc-Lon Blackout. It’s in the home dec section. I got it for 60% off and it was a little over $2.50 a yard, which was a super deal. The solid blue will be the main curtain fabric and the blue chevron will be the accent.

Luckily, Tom trusts me so I hardly consulted him at all on the fabric choices. He’s right to trust me…I have good taste. The yellow and blue fabrics will be to finish up Luigi. I also bought some faux-chambray because it was on super sale and I like the look of it. I’m seeing yet another Tova in my future. Finally, I couldn’t turn down the top two fat quarters since they were also on sale.

I don’t have a back in mind for Luigi yet, so that will be my next project. I’m hoping to have him quilted and finished up soon.

    This is so much easier to see in the picture than up close. Remember when Dad and I were a little confused?
