Minecraft Mondays #8: Wolf

Happy Monday!

This week is week #8, and it's the
week of Austin's favorite
character. I called it a dog, until he corrected me--the dog has a red collar. No collar means it's a wolf. :D (He did his second grade animal report on the wolf.)

For the wolf, you'll need a light gray, a dark gray, black, white, and a little bit of a brown or tan color.


Light gray: (1) 3 1/2 x 12 1/2"
            (1) 3 1/2 x 5"
            (1) 2 x 6 1/2"
            (1) 2 x 3 1/2"
            (2) 2 x 2"

Dark gray:  (2) 2 x 3 1/2"

Black:      (1) 2 x 6"
            (1) 2 x 5"

White:      (1) 5 x 5"
            (1) 2 x 6"
            (2) 2 x 5"

            (3) 2 x 2"

Brown:      (1) 2 x 5"


Stitch 2 x 6" rectangles of black and white together on the long edge.

Cut into (3) 2 x 3 1/2" rectangles.

Assembly: Assemble in order of the numbered arrows, then stitch the three sections together as shown by the larger gray arrows.

And then you have a wolf!

My son helped me press seams this week. (and only burned me once!-ha) Then we sashed the wolf onto the rest of his row and here are rows one and row two.  (If you're sashing as you go, the sashing rectangles are 5 1/2 x 12 1/2".)

I can't believe we're 8 weeks in! :) He is so excited, and now wants to learn to sew.

The sew along is pressing along and the blocks are so simple that a few people who started late have caught all the way up. :D (I like simple blocks!)

Here are some of the blocks shared on Instagram this last week. It's so much fun to see your photos! @sewlamb turned her creeper into a mug rug for her son. :D (Thanks @maritahaydon, @myhandmadespace, @mellierc, @sewlamb, @sew_eileen, @kristinewithak12, @soonerlandsally, @fatquartershop for sharing!)

Next week's block is the Ocelot.

Thanks for following along, and don't forget to use the #minecraftmondays tag on Instagram. :D Keep the pictures coming!

Don't you love it when the little ones teach us? Lol. So cute - he will treasure this quilt!!

You'll know which character is which by the end of this quilt!

Hi Kelly, I posted my minecraft quilt progress in FB and on my blog and many people is asking for the pattern. I'm sending them to this blog, I hope it's ok.

Having a quilting apprentice is not without its risks. It does sound like you have found just the right subject material to spark an interest in sewing.
