Minecraft Patterns

Hello! I just realized that there may have been comments / questions submitted that did not go to my email, but were stored in the blog backend, and didn’t notify me they were there! I have tried to respond to everyone via email or to comments posted, but if I missed a question you still need an answer to, please let me know again.

Most of the comments and questions I receive are for the Minecraft Quilt I made a couple years ago – first the blocks were made as Mug Rugs for my son’s 7th Birthday Party and given out to all the kids, and then later I remade the blocks larger and turned it into a quilt. I did have them up on Craftsy for free download, but Craftsy was asked to remove them. So they have been removed. You should, however, be able to copy the patterns based on the information on each blog post. I added a new category – Minecraft – and linked all Minecraft related blog posts to that new subcategory. Scroll to the bottom of the page and you can click on Minecraft in the categories list at the bottom and that should bring up all Minecraft related posts. If I missed something, let me know and I’ll see if I can help you out. I have been impressed with the photos that have been shared with me. And I just noticed a comment about a Llama and a Blaze? Will need to look into those and see if I can help you get that set up – I have seen the llama in the game, but haven’t tried to create him. And I’m not sure what a Blaze is – will get back to you on this.

Anyways – keep at it – have fun and make it your own!

Minecraft Block Patterns

Just a quick note – I have been getting emails asking about the Minecraft patterns that I previously had on Craftsy. I received an email from Craftsy stating that the Minecraft people contacted Craftsy and requested that the patterns be removed. I never received any money from the publication of these, I just wanted to share what I created for my son as I felt others may want to make the same.

I did post each block on my blog and each should state the colors used. You should be able to recreate them on your own just by looking at the blocks, and the colors used (all Kona solids). I know this is an extra step for you – but think of the end result!

Minecraft Quilt Block Alternate: Ocelot

I had a recent request from Kelly who is using 9 of the Minecraft Block designs to make a quilt for her daughter’s class fundraiser; the nine blocks include the request of an Ocelot or Cheetah (the cheetah is the school mascot). I have a feeling there is going to be one happy kid at that school after the fundraiser!

I did a search for Minecraft Ocelot and Cheetah and didn’t find much for Cheetah, but found several images for Ocelot. I came up with an initial concept that I shared with both Kelly, and my son Riley. Kelly liked what I came up with and wanted to add more spots for the cheetah for school. Riley told me to remove 2 of the spots and make it an Ocelot. So with this information, you can either run with it as is and have an option for an ocelot, or add some more spots, and have a cheetah. Either way I think he’s pretty cute, and this little guy will be turning into a pillow for my son’s bed, as his quilt top is already complete!

As for why I haven’t shown you a completed Minecraft Quilt yet, my son is still debating on the back of the quilt design. I’m thinking with how detailed the front quilting will be with all the pixels, I think we should just do a solid black, quilt all the pixels, and be done! I am not looking forward to quilting all those pixels for 16 blocks, plus the 5-foot long title block! But I need to get it done. I need it off my plate! But here is a photo of the completed quilt top:

To create the Ocelot block you will need the following Kona solids:

  • Kona Banana
  • Kona Yarrow
  • Kona Raffia
  • Kona Jungle
  • Kona Coffee
  • Kona Espresso
  • Kona White

Add this pattern and all the others to your Craftsy Library.

And this morning I put together a quilt top kit listing on Etsy which will give you the fabric to make all 16 blocks as seen above, the Title Block, the sashing, borders and binding, plus the bonus Ocelot block. It will also include enough fusible grid to make all the blocks. You can find it on Etsy.

I want to thank all of you who have followed along with this Minecraft Quilt Along series and saved the patterns to your Craftsy libraries. I would love to see the progress you are making on your blocks! Share your progress on Instagram with the hashtag #MinecraftQAL. And please upload your finished projects on Craftsy – I would love to see them!

ON ANOTHER NOTE: One of my next blog posts will have an update on the Urban Pods quilt. I have had a couple requests recently to show photos of the completed quilt, as well as some tips on getting the top sewn together. I found the pattern (it was buried) and I had to fix my ruler, it snapped during construction a couple months ago, and now I just need to do a refresher course for myself on block construction and some photography. Thank you to Jane and Janet for your patience – I should have that blog post up soon!

I also have a few other patterns I am working on and hope to have those available soon as well as photos of the completed quilts, and the stories behind them.

Minecraft Quilt Block 17: Title Block

I finally finished the Minecraft Title Block and completed the tutorial! I had a few delays with construction, illness and running out of fusible grid, but I finally got everything back on track and completed the Title Block. Riley was so excited to have it completed, and he helped me take photos, but his little arms aren’t quite long enough to hold out the corners.

To create this Title Block, I STRONGLY urge you to use fusible grid, even if you haven’t used it on the other blocks – it will help in keeping the small squares more stable.

You will also need:

  • Kona Black
  • Kona White

Add this pattern to your Craftsy Library and I would love to see your progress! Share what you’ve made so far on Instagram with the hashtag #MinecraftQAL.

I will work on finishing the top and writing up the finishing instructions and should have that available soon!

Minecraft Quilt Pattern Update

I know some of you are patiently waiting for the next release of the Minecraft Quilt Series: The Title Block. I am too. First I was delayed with construction – we had the moulding installed for our entire house, which meant that everything in every single room needed to be smushed to the center. That didn’t allow for access to anything. Now that my office is almost back to normal, I have some access to my cutting table and sewing machine.

I spent Friday morning cutting out many, many white squares, only to realize that I didn’t have enough fusible grid left over from the larger blocks. I called my local quilt shop and they said they had some, but when I went in, they didn’t. Whoever I had talked to must have been looking at the non-fusible bolt. I checked Joann – they don’t carry it. I checked with the LQS again as I had bought it from them last spring – that store didn’t have it, but another store had a few yards left, did I want to drive over in the pouring rain and fight traffic to get it? Yes. Not really. But yes. So I drove over to get it, and then several other things to get done that day and unable to get back to cutting/sewing. And then the stomach flu this weekend. Long story short: I should now have everything I need to finish the Title Block. I am hoping to get 3 letters done per day and have the Title Block pattern posted by the end of the week. I’ll have to see how it goes, though. It’s a lot of squares to cut out, and is very large at about 5′ wide with very tiny squares.

I haven’t forgotten, just delayed, but will be finished soon. From there I will figure out the finishing requirements for the borders. Once I have the whole quilt pattern finished, I will offer a Quilt Top kit in my Etsy shop for those of you that would like to create this but may not have all the Kona Solids. All the fabrics will be labeled, and I can include the fusible grid as an option. I really recommend it, but of course it’s not required.

Thank you for your patience, and I would love to see any progress you have made on your blocks!

Minecraft Quilt Block 16: Zombie

This is the last main block of the Minecraft Quilt! And just in time for Halloween, get ready to create your Zombie block. I think he’s kind of cute, don’t you?

To create the Zombie block you will need the following Kona solids:

  • Kona Laurel
  • Kona Jungle
  • Kona Malibu
  • Kona Black

Isn’t it exciting to have the last block? I’m going to take a short break to let you catch up on your blocks, and I will be back soon with the Title Block!

Add this pattern to your Craftsy Library.

Minecraft Quilt Block 15: Wolf

There’s something about the Wolf – he looks dangerous yet adorable at the same time. Like other blocks, he is primarily one color with a few other colors thrown in to give him character.

To make the Wolf block you will need the following Kona solids:

  • Kona Shadow
  • Kona Earth
  • Kona Raffia
  • Kona Black
  • Kona Coffee
  • Kona White

Be sure to save all your squares from previous blocks and check for any leftover squares for the new blocks!

Add this pattern to your Craftsy Library.

Just one more block to go!

Minecraft Quilt Block 14: TNT

Today you get to make the TNT block! While more challenging than the other 15 main blocks, this will be good practice for the main Title Block coming up. The TNT block you will be using 2 different sizes of squares. I urge you to try the fusible grid on this block if you haven’t been using it yet. As you can see the Cardinal blocks are the standard size, and half of the White blocks are the standard size, but the center section of Black and White squares are smaller – the same size they will be in the Title Block.

Take your time to cut accurately, go slowly, and it will work out beautifully! You will find all the specifics in the pattern.

To make the TNT block you will need the following Kona solids:

  • Kona Cardinal
  • Kona White
  • Kona Black

Add this pattern to your Craftsy Library.

Next week you’ll get the final 2 blocks, which are both back at standard size.

Minecraft Quilt Block 13: Steve

You can’t have a Minecraft quilt without Steve, right? My son showed me several different versions of Steve: Diamond Steve, Golden Steve, etc. But we decided to go with a classic version of Steve. Riley picked out the color for the blue eyes himself.

To make the Steve block you will need the following Kona solids:

  • Kona Bone
  • Kona Coffee
  • Kona Raffia
  • Kona Earth
  • Kona Malibu
  • Kona White

Add this pattern to your Craftsy Library.

Next up is the TNT block which is a little more challenging, but still oh so fun!

Minecraft Quilt Block 12: Slime

Slime is the last block for this week, which will give you a few days to play catch up if you need to! Again with just 3 colors, Slime is so simple to create, yet seems to give much personality.

To make the Slime block you will need the following Kona solids:

  • Kona Leaf
  • Kona Mint
  • Kona Black

Add this pattern to your Craftsy Library.

I’ll be back next week with 2 more blocks. I would love to see your progress so far! Share your progress on Instagram with the hashtag #MinecraftQAL.
