Finish It Up Friday ~ Minecraft!

My first Christmas gift is done! This Minecraft quilt will be for Big L.

I used patterns from Seriously, I Think It Needs Stitches.

I modified it slightly. Mine is based on a 2 inch grid rather than 1 1/2 inches.

I added his name and the year in the quilting.

My machine binding improves little by little.

After washing the flannel backing fabric, I found it shrunk so much that I had to add to it.

I can’t wait to give this to my little guy! But I had better get going on his brother’s quilt.

Also, I wanted to say thank you for all the comments on yesterday’s post. If you are at all interested in the WordPress/Blogger/comments issues, go back and read the comments. Interesting stuff!

Have a great day!

    You really had to think outside the box – and inside the boxes – for this quilt. It looks terrific, and you just know Big L will be thrilled to snuggle under it.

  9. I’m out of the loop! I love the quilt, but have no idea what Minecraft is. I can only guess that it is a video game and that you have nailed it! Good for you for crossing off a gift already!
