Have you ever played the game of Minecraft? I haven’t, but my grandson, Big L loves it. It is a video game about finding and building things. I wanted to make a quilt for him for Christmas and my son suggested a Minecraft quilt. It turns out that many people have made quilts on this theme! I found free patterns on this blog: Seriously….It Needs Stitches. I finally broke open this FQ bundle to get the solids I needed.
The patterns are written for 12 inch blocks. I’m making mine 16 inches finished. This one is called Creeper.
These blocks are based on an 8 by 8 grid. I’m using my 2 1/2 inch square, 2 1/2 by 4 1/2 inch rectangle, and my 2 1/2 inch strip dies from Accuquilt a lot for this quilt.
So far, I have these four done. I plan to make a total of 12.
They are fun and easy to piece. If you would like to make a Minecraft quilt but don’t have a good selection of solid scraps, Fat Quarter Shop has a Minecraft Fat Quarter bundle of solids . Just click the link and then search for a Minecraft Fat Quarter Bundle.
BTW, you can get free shipping on purchases over $25 from Accuquilt using this link .
Have a great day!
