This is an instructable about how to make a mario quilt block. Just the block, not an entire quilt. You may change the red squares to green if you want a Luigi block, but that is up to you.

Step 1: Cutting the Squares

Picture of Cutting the Squares

Cut the following amount of 2" squares for each block in your quilt: 46 red squares, 44 yellow squares, 64 squares, and 117 background squares. You dont have to stick with classic colors, you may use substitute them any way you like, try making 4 mario squares, each with different colors for an abstract look.

how about a Mario with the fire flower.

the fire mario would be do-able if you just check out the color scheme from the old super mario bros game. I believe he was white where the red is and red where the brown is (except for the shoes)
