Not so easy - as you will see on my previous post here and SlightyOffQuilter responded to my plea by creating a pattern on her EQ7.

It was a challenge, I can tell you, particularly the two that have 256 1" squares............ You should be able to spot the blocks I made first as the points become more 'off', the longer I did it and the more I lost the will to live, lol.

Anyway - here it is. Thanks for looking!

Great job he will love it.

My darling great NIECE is a Minecraft fanatic! Her older brother got her into it and I am thrilled as the game teaches so many great skills and she has really improved her computer skills and knowledge! I would love to make this for her!

I loved the way you organized your pieces.

Where did you get the safety pin/numbers? They are really neat!

I will have to start collecting the fabric for this. What are the dimensions of your quilt, if I may ask? Thank you

If you re-read my OP on this thread, there's a link to my previous post - the pattern is halfway down that page. This should be a link to SlightlyOffQuilter's pattern.

Okay, I am a little behind in viewing this. Want to say....FABULOUS.appreciate the link to pattern. I have a mine craft fanatic as well. He has been waiting patiently for a quilt. Guess I now know what to do!!!

WOW this is awesome!!

I have Minecraft quilts on my Christmas 'to-do' list - my niece & nephew are totally obsessed with the game. I'm planning much simpler quilts than yours though, I'm just doing one big creeper face on each with random green squares behind it. (Creeper is the green guy in the top left corner of Knitette's quilt, for those of you not familiar with the game).

Your quilt is really making me re-think that plan, though, I like yours so much better than what I am planning! But I have to make 2 of them in twin size, plus about four other quilts for Christmas that I haven't even started yet. (eep) Maybe I'll stick to the simple quilts and make them pickaxe pillows for their birthdays or something! LOL

Really really well done, and it IS too bad this pattern can't be sold!

My Grandsons also are mindcraft fans, you did a awsome job, i have EQ7 but just learning it. thanks for your posting.

ann31039 08-14-2014 06:47 PM

Great job. And yes I get it. Have an addict here also.

sewmini 08-15-2014 07:03 AM

WOW you deserve a pat on the back for creating such a one of a kind......sew interesting!!!

Thanks for the compliment, but you couldn't pay me enough to make another! (I'm not sure if you know much about quilting, but as I'm in the UK, the cost of the materials alone were around $300.)

Awesome job :)

It's lovely. I have a nephew who would be delighted with this quilt.

They are Beautiful :)

Daylesewblessed 01-01-2015 05:20 AM

This is fascinating! It inspires me to do a locker hooking pillow of the "Creeper".

mariatherese 01-01-2015 05:22 AM

Perfect! My 9-yo is also completely hung up on minecraft.

Micha 01-23-2015 07:29 PM

Thank you so much SlightyOffQuilter and Knitette. My son has to go to many doctors appointments in the upcoming months. He is usually tired after and always puts a blanket in the car for the ride home. I was looking for something I could make to bring him a little joy. This is perfect! He loves Minecraft. Now, I just have to collect some fabrics.

I found this forum when I found this quilt on Pinterest and thought my little boy would LOVE it! THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE PATTERN! This is the first quilt that I've made for years and my points are no where near perfect but I don't think my 5 year old will notice or care :) I can't wait til his June B-day! My MIL hand quilted this, it just needs the binding now.

came out really nice

kat13 03-26-2015 05:24 PM

I think you did a great job! My DGS would love this!!

nkochrn 03-27-2015 06:19 AM

Thanks!
Knitette- I s curious how you did your TNT letters. I was going to cut mine out and then applique them on but I ended up using some iron on t-shirt vinyl that I cut out with my cricut.

That's what I did - traced them onto fusible, ironed onto Kona black, cut them out and then used a blanket stitch to appliqué them on :)

Gorgeous! My son wants one of these too!

zozee 04-23-2015 05:31 PM

That looks terrific!! I made a small Minecraft creeper quilt a few months ago (posted pic) here and I can absolutely attest to the fact that being all squares does NOT make it easy . Lost my will to live at times, too!!!
