Minecraft Quilt Details 

This quilt’s finished size in 63” x 63” which makes for a great throw. Perfect for wrapping around any gamer while facing the Minecraft universe. The quilt is beginner friendly, but assumes basic knowledge of piecing, basting, quilting, and binding. Use a ¼” seam allowance throughout the entire pattern. All fabric requirements are based off a 44” width of fabric. Dimensions are written height x width throughout the instructions.
 
We have used the following abbreviations – WOF = Width of Fabric, RSF = Right Side of Fabric and WSF = Wrong Side of Fabric.
 
We also recommend before starting this project – as with any project – read all the directions. This extra step saves so much time in the long run and hopefully, reduce your “quality time” with your seam ripper!

Quilt Block Layout Diagram

The diagram below shows how all the blocks are laid-out. Use either a design wall or your floor to completely layout all the green and black 5” x 5” squares. Randomly place the greens by color to give a pixelated look.
 
The layout is 14 rows by 14 rows and requires 196 (5” x 5”) blocks in total. 20 black blocks and 176 green blocks in various colors.
 
Once blocks are completely laid out - stack them into horizontal rows and label each row by number as indicated in the diagram on page 3. This step will help you stay organized as you begin sewing.

Step 1: Begin Sewing Blocks

Begin sewing your rows horizontally starting with Row # 1 as shown below.

Continue sewing all your horizontal rows one row at a time until all 14 horizontal rows are finished. As shown in diagram below.

Step 2: Press Seams to Nest Quilt Block Corners

Press your seams row by row in opposite directions. This will allow you to “nest” your corners together easily to create perfect corners. To begin, lay Row 1 WSF up so that the seams show. With a hot iron, press all the seams to the LEFT. For the next Row 2 with WSF up, press all the seams to the RIGHT.

Continue this pressing method for the remaining rows, alternating between LEFT and RIGHT pressing as you go along.

Step 3: How to Nest Quilt Block Corners

Now you will begin to join the horizontal rows together. Lay Horizontal Row 1 on top of Horizontal Row 2 with RSF facing each other.

Next, by lining up each blocks seam with each other, the pressed seams from either side of the rows will nest neatly into the fabric. Pin to hold each seam corner together. You will have lined up a total of 13 corners in all.
 
Below is a side visual of a nested corner from the side.

Step 4: Sew Quilt Block Rows Together

Sew the two rows together with a 1/4” seam allowance. Press seams in same direction. In example below, the seams are pressed up.

Continue sewing row-by-row until all the rows are sewn. Press finished seams in the same direction.
