The Tale of Two Creeper Quilts

DSCN1723 Creeper is a character in the on line game called Minecraft.  It is a very popular game for little kids.  I made 2 twin size quilts to sell last summer at the Metro Con in Tampa.  My older grandkids had a craft booth there.  They didn’t sell so they are now up on Etsy.  My youngest grandson wanted to be in the picture so I left him pose.  It does give a perspective of the size of the quilts.  Here are some more pictures of the quilts. DSCN1346DSCN1719DSCN1729DSCN1730 The quilts are just as nice on the back side and can also be used as just a green quilt.  I used poly batting because it is light and cuddly for a child.  It also is easy to wash which is important with children.  It was machine quilted in the ditch with a wavy stitch to reinforce the seams for long wear.  The fabric is high quality cotton from my stash.  There might be some poly cotton blends that may of slipped into my stash from others giving me fabric out of their stash.  I have fabric that I don’t remember buying.  The quilt came together from what I had in my stash that matched the pixels in the game. https://www.etsy.com/listing/211215775/creeper-quilt?ref=sr_gallery_18&ga_search_query=Minecraft+quilt&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery

      Thanks. I tried to keep them close to what the pixels look like in the game.

  4. Do the grandkids already have one of their own? I don’t have grandkids so have no need but they look like they would sell in a heartbeat. Someone is kicking themselves now for not snapping them up when they had the chance. Grandson looks quite cozy under it. 🙂

      It didn’t take too long to make. I did them both in about a week. I have some quilts I need to finish. These where very easy to do. Thanks for stopping in.

      1. Mrs. King (I’m guessing at your name!)– You must be a super-sewer!! I sew the square together and then I only quilt by hand and it takes me months to finish a quilt! My kids bought me a fancy quilting machine– but even after a 8 hour class I’m mystified by how to quilt on it. Wish I could drop in for a lesson! Happy sewing!! xo

          I started sewing as a child and learned to quilt then. After 50 years, it just comes together. I do have projects that need to finish. Join a quilt group in your area, you will learn from them. Quilters love to teach other quilters.
