This is a twin sized minecraft quilt. For those of you unfamiliar with Minecraft is it a very popular pixelated game where you build and grow things. All the things in the game are made from blocks. I found images online to make my blocks. I used my Kona Cotton Color Card to pick my colors and I tried to match the colors of the game. My kids were all too happy to help me with the design. They even helped rearrange some of the design of the blocks when it didn't look quite right.
I saw a tutorial on how to make the TNT block where you use all 1 inch squares. Ha! Mine looked awful and I knew there was no way I was going to get that many tiny pieces to line up. Here it is:
So I decided to use strips for all but the inside of the N and it looks so much neater. Here is my new center of the TNT block:
I think Steve needs some color changes, but otherwise I am quite pleased with how it turned out.
I meandered the quilt with a dark monopoly thread because of the black background. It looks good on both the dark and the light colors. Gray thread would have been too visible on the sashing and I wanted the blocks to stand out.
I found this pixelated flannel at Joann's this weekend and it is just perfect for this quilt.
Originally it was going to have a full green border, but it didn't look good. My husband suggested just a small strip to break up the black. I think it added a perfect frame for the quilt.
This quilt is for sale in my etsy shop. It is also my One Monthly Goal for March.
