Minecraft Quilt #2 – Finished!

 

And wrapping it up with my last finish for Christmas, and last finish for the year! The Dude’s Minecraft quilt, made mostly because of the commission for the first one. This was pretty much entirely his design – I just supplied the labor. And sometimes not even that – I had him laying out the blocks for me to assemble.

All you people complaining about it being 70º on the East Coast right now? I hate you. The snow is up to my knees and I gave up quickly on pictures.

For those who are unfamiliar with Minecraft, I’m letting the Dude explain the layout so you can see why my eyes glaze over when he tries to talk about it.

I put the wither and the ender dragon with Steve and his wolf to say he is fighting them with his wolf. The 2nd row is for the nether, which is all about fire, and I put the squid with the nether. The 3rd row is hostile mobs – the creeper is on the far right because cats scare him. The 4th row the cat is on far left because of the creeper and the rest are what I had left. 

There is, of course, a CC block.

As with the last version, the blocks came from Fandom in Stitches {with modifications, such as the red collar which makes a wolf into a dog – clearly different} or Googling the face and making it up.

The backing is me spoiling him – it’s 90″ minky, because I don’t piece minky. But he had to have minky. Shannon Fabrics is the only one making 90″ minky right now, and it is gorgeous, heavy stuff. And, um, not actually speckled in white. That’s what snow looks like, East Coasters.

At this point, my fingers were frozen and the quilt and camera were completely snow covered, so I gave up.

Suffice to say, the binding is Kona Steel, the sashing and cornerstones are from Spoonflower, and the rest is solids…lots and lots of different solids. The quilting is boxy stipple.

CC feels most comfortable with the evil mobs. Unsurprisingly.

{Also – I am have trouble with the commenting forms. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don’t, sometimes just for some people. I’m trying to find a better one – but the better one, so far, isn’t working any better. If you have a suggestion, leave a comment….if you can.}

Congrats on the finish! Looks like The Dude really likes it. Isn’t it the best feeling to see a family member cuddled with a quilt you made?

Fun post. I confess I have no idea what your kiddo is saying but glad for the finish and love that he was very hands on with it. That’s really cool.

Well, you know I love it! And you know my “big little” is going to love it too! It’s seriously awesome…

(And for the record, I am NOT complaining about the crazy warm temps here. Just enjoying it.)

Another quilt perfect for the recipient. I still love his involvement and his description.

What a great finish, I am sure this will be your sons snuggly go everywhere quilt. I spoiled mine two kids and used minky on their quilts …ok, I used minky on my own snuggly quilt too! It is super warm on the cold winter nights I just love the stuff! TFS.
