## Minecraft Quilt Bonus Blocks: TNT & Grass Cubes

12:00 AM

It's week 31 of Minecraft Mondays.. only two more to go after this!

This week's bonus blocks are the TNT & Grass cubes. It was fun to do some non-characters for a change.

First up is the TNT block.

The measurements on this were a little tricky at first, trying to make the letters look right, but keeping it in a 12" block. But it worked out in the end, and it's really not too complicated!

For TNT, you'll need two shades of red, some white and a bit of black.

(1) 1 1/4 x 5"

(3) 1 1/4 x 9 1/2"

(1) 1 1/4 x 12"

(1) 1 1/4 x 12"

This is the one my son asked to be made into a cushion, a CUBE cushion. Which means I'll need 4 of these, and a top and a bottom. Which is a whole other block. But for now I'm just doing one. ;) Let's hope the cube cushion turns out for his birthday!

For the Grass, you'll need two shades of green and two shades of brown. (or more if you want, and have scraps--these are good for scraps!)

(1) 2 x 3 1/2"

(1) 3 1/2 x 8"

(1) 2 x 8"

(1) 2 x 6"

(1) 2 x 3 1/2"

(1) 2 x 5"

(1) 2 x 6"

(1) 3 1/2 x 6"

(1) 3 1/2 x 3 1/2"

(1) 2 x 17 1/2"

(1) 2 x 17 1/2"

Grass! :D

Thanks for popping in, there are only two weeks left of extra blocks. This has been so much fun!

See you next week!
