Minecraft Mondays #6: Oink.

Week 6: Another one of the few blocks that I didn't have to google the name of. :D

Wow! It's been a crazy week for Minecraft Mondays! Fat Quarter Shop got the Minecraft Sew Along fat quarter bundle up online, and shared on all of their social media, which brought a lot of new traffic and questions. If you order one, I hope you'll be happy with the colors I chose.. it was so hard to pick from so many shades! I'm excited to start using them! Many thanks to Kimberly and the FQS team for putting this together. We are going to be giving some away soon! Stay tuned for that. :)

If you're new to Minecraft Mondays, welcome! You can find all of the information about the sew along by clicking the button in the right sidebar over there. Or by clicking here.

We are up to block #6, but if you're just joining in, the blocks are pretty simple so you should have plenty of time to catch up.

The pig's not much of a looker, but looks much better when combined with the rest of them. ;) He seems a little angry. lol

If you're sashing as you go, you'll just need to cut (3) 5 1/2 x 12 1/2" rectangles of black for each row.

For the pig you'll need two shades of pink (mine could've used a little more contrast, but I hadn't received my FQS bundle yet so used what I had), and a couple of small patches each of black, white and tan (brown?). I may be raiding my scrap bin for those again. :)


Darker Pink: (1) 5 x 12 1/2"
             (1) 5 x 6 1/2"
             (1) 3 1/2 x 6 1/2"
             (2) 2 x 5"
             (1) 2 x 2"

Lighter Pink: (2) 2 x 5"
              (1) 2 x 2"

Black: (2) 2 x 2"

White: (2) 2 x 2"

Tan: (2) 2 x 2"

Prep: Stitch black and white squares together, and pink (2x5") rectangles together as shown.

Assembly: Stitch together in order of the numbered arrows.

If you're sashing as you go like I am, stitch the left edge of the pig onto the right edge of last week's block and sashing. Then cut a 5 1/2 x 12 1/2" rectangle of black and stitch to the right edge of the pig so you're ready to attach next week's block.

Row 2 is halfway done! :)

Here are Anita's and Eileen's cow blocks from last week. They are @daydreamsofquilts and @sew_eileen on IG if you want to follow their progress.

And Karen (@karens_photos) has joined in with Alex and Steve! It's so exciting to see all of these blocks from far flung places. :) I'm on the west coast, Eileen on the east coast (of the US), Anita in Canada, and now Karen down under. :)

Thanks again for mining along ladies! It is so much more fun!!

Next week's block will be the villager. I've been looking forward to that one. :)

Oink. :) Have a super week!

*Edit 1/20/2020: Be sure to always use scant quarter inch seams and if you'd like to see blocks from the other sew alongs, come join the sew along group on my FB page! And if you make any of these blocks, come find me on IG @kellifanninquilts, I'd love to see! 

*Update: I'm making video shorts of these tutorials to put on youtube. Come join the fun. They're easy to pause and sew along to, if you like to sew from a laptop or tablet. :) The pig's tutorial video can be found *HERE*.


Last week, I showed your blocks to my 25 year old son. He thought they were cool.

Hooray! Hoping to actually get my block done on a Monday this week. :) Thank you!

I should be making this quilt. Both of my grandsons are obsessed with this game. Thank you for this!!

I'm glad I found your minecraft post... I've been searching in how to create minecraft blocks for a quilt for my son. I'll definitively be sewing one of these. :-)

You're on page 1 of the "Best Sellers" list on the Fat Quarter Shop website! Congratulations!! The color assortment is just beautiful and they go together perfectly.

Oink! Very cute block. My daughter thinks these are so cool, so I will probably have to make her a quilt!
