Minecraft Quilt Letters: D-F Tutorials

Hi, everyone! Happy Weekend!

A few Instagram friends have offered to test different letter blocks for me, but I still don't have testers for all of them. So I thought, if you need any of these letters, maybe you could be my testers. :D

I'm 99.9% sure all of the measurements are correct, and would test them myself, but I don't want to end up with an entire Minecraft alphabet of letter blocks, when I only need 6 of them for my son's name. :/

So I decided to go ahead and start posting the tutorials, so if anyone else is putting a name on their Minecraft quilt front or back, or making a cushion, they could get on with it, instead of waiting for me to find testers for each letter. :D

Here are the next three Minecraft font quilt letter tutorials. If you find any errors, please let me know right away so I can correct it. I appreciate your help!

Thanks for following along and helping me out with the testing if you need any of these letters.  I just went over all of the math and directions again, and it looks good. Let me know if anything's amiss!

And stay tuned Monday if you're looking for extra blocks to make your quilt bigger. :D
