Minecraft Monday #33: The Final Countdown

It's been such a fun year so far, but as with all good things, Minecraft Mondays is coming to an end! It's Week 33, and this week will be the final three extra block tutorials. But my son says there are millions of things you could make blocks from in Minecraft, and has suggested that if we randomly come up with another one in the future, we can just call it the "Minecraft Minute". And make it a one time thing, or random single block feature. He's got a good creative head on his shoulders, that one. ;)

Thank you so very much to all of you for following and sewing along on this epic 10th birthday quilt journey! :D And to the Mini Mr. for helping to come up with so many extra blocks for you. At first I was sad that he found out his surprise, but it ended up being a blessing in disguise, as I got to share the process with him and watch him get excited about picking out colors and designing additional blocks! And thanks to @little.emerz and @wisemantammy for sharing some of their extras as well! I can't wait to start setting this quilt together, and putting together a great big show and tell soon with all of your quilts I've seen over on IG. :D

The final extra blocks are the Bat, Herobrine, and Zombie (not to be confused with Zombie Villager, this is just the plain Zombie..?..)





*********************************

First up is the Bat. For the bat, you'll need three shades of brown, some background, and a couple of patches of black and white.



Cutting:

Dark Brown: (1) 2 x 4"
            (1) 2 x 10"

Medium Brown: (1) 2 x 10"
              (2) 2 x 9 1/2"
              (2) 2 x 6 1/2"
              (6) 2 x 3 1/2"

Light Brown/Tan: (1) 2 x 4"

Black: (1) 2 x 4"
       (1) 2 x 3 1/2"

White: (1) 2 x 4"

Background: (In the diagram, background is also shown as black, but I used purple in my block.)
            (2) 2 x 6 1/2"
            (1) 3 1/2 x 3 1/2"

Prep:

a) Stitch 2 x 4" rectangles of dark brown and light brown together, then cut into (2) 2 x 3 1/2" units as shown below. Set aside.




b) Stitch 2 x 10" strips of dark brown and medium brown together, then cut into (5) 2 x 3 1/2" units as shown below. Set aside.





c) Stitch 2 x 4" rectangles of black and white together, then cut into (2) 2 x 3 1/2" units as shown below. Set aside.




Assembly:  Assemble according to the small grey arrows first, then assemble in order of the numbered arrows.



And then you will have a BAT! 



**********************************

Next is Herobrine. Which looks just like Steve but with white eyes and a nose that's the same color as his mouth. So let me just refer you over to the Steve block which was week #1, way back in January! You can get there by clicking right HERE, or by finding him over on the Sew Along page. Just remember to change that eye and nose color, and you'll have Herobrine!



**********************************

And lastly.. :/ ...(bittersweet) is Zombie.




For the Zombie you'll need two shades of green and a small bit of black.

Cutting:

Darker Green: (1) 2 x 14"
              (1) 2 x 10 1/2"

Lighter Green: (1) 2 x 14"
               (1) 2 x 10 1/2"
               (1) 2 x 9 1/2"
               (1) 2 x 4"
               (2) 2 x 3 1/2"
               (2) 3 1/2 x 3 1/2"
               (1) 5 x 6 1/2"

Black: (1) 3 1/2 x 4"
       (1) 2 x 3 1/2"

Assembly: Assemble according to the small grey arrows first, then assemble according to the numbered arrows.



And you will have a regular old Zombie! :D



It's Sunday evening as I'm typing this, and I still don't have the heart block from last week stitched, and haven't stitched these three myself, yet, but I'm hoping to get all caught up this week! Last week was the first full week of 'back to school', and we had some other appointments during the week as well, so hardly any sewing went on last week.

Fingers crossed for more sewing this week!

Thanks a million, again, from the bottom of my heart!  This has been so much fun!!  Can't wait to see more finished quilts!
