Sword Quilt and June Stash Report

My 12 yo son made this 32 x 32 minecraft sword block over the last 4 months.  He has been helping me make custom minecraft quilts and he wanted something small he could make himself.  His top was much less than flat and has many puckers, so I quilted it with a small meander on the white, hoping it would help it lay flat. The sword handle has some lines that alternate up/down and sideways on each block.  I finished up the sword with some Xs.  The quilting really helped make this a keeper. I tried to match the binding colors to the sword and was mostly successful.

Well, what else have I been up to this month?  Buying fabric for minecraft quilts and sewing minecraft quilts.  My husband and kids helped me make 7 of them this month.  It was nice having them layout the blocks.  They also did all of the ironing on those blocks for me!

I have also been testing a  pattern for Myra that you are just gonna love.  It comes out mid July. And I started a couple of cute baby boy quilts.  Can't wait to get those finished!

Here is my stash report for June. Had to buy a lot of fabric this of those purchases were not "have to".  Can't resist a good sale, ya know? I'll spare you from showing you all the minecraft quilts and just stick to the big one. You're welcome!

  1. Your son did a great job! Matching the binding to the sword tip and handle really really add to the finished quilt.

  2. His quilt is awesome! The Minecraft and bargellos are stunning as well! And oh how fun to buy fabric that you actually need and will use right away! ;)
