This was a special request of a friend at work for her daughter who loves Minecraft. Definitely not a quilt I was looking forward to, all solids is not really my thing, and these colors are not girly. Plus I had to design the pattern, being somewhat difficult since I have never played minecraft. It ended up being a couple long weekends, and ended up being more fun than I expected. This was the sort of quilt that you just start and try to move through as quickly as possible because you want to make it for the person who will get it. A labor of love for the recipient, rather than the quilt.
Each pixel is a 3×3 square. But I made some strips to reduce the number of squares. So there are some 3×6 and 3×9 rectangles in there. I became acquainted with my hera marker and did a 3×3 quilted grid. I am happy with this quilt, and also happy that I don’t have to make another. But the proof is in the pudding of this adorable picture of my friend’s daughter loving her quilt. So worth it.
I still have my notes for this quilt, so if anybody wants a rough pattern, let me know and I can write it up pretty quickly.
This is the cutting list and layout diagram. The quilt finishes at 54″ square. The cutting dimensions are unfinished, assuming a 1/4″ seam throughout.
