Bad Boys of Minecraft - a Finished Quilt

I am finally back in business! {Literally - there's a slew of t-shirt quilt finishes coming up next.} My longarm is here, and I tested it out on my nephew's quilt to make sure I remember what I'm doing. Spoiler alert - it's just like riding a bicycle. Well, wait - no. Not like the way I ride a bike. Much less falling with the longarm.

Ahem. Anyway. I pieced the blocks back in September/October while I was waiting for the longarm. My nephew requested his nine favorite "bad guys" from Minecraft. I said Steve isn't a bad guy, and my sister said, "not the way he plays it."

I like the wolf the best. Both he and the Enderdragon are slightly different from the ones in the Dude's version. Some of the patterns can be found on Fandom in Stitches, but at this point, I just Google-image it.

The backing is orange Shannon minky. The blocks are mostly Kona cotton, with some Cotton Couture and other bits and pieces thrown in. The sashing is from Spoonflower.

The quilting is boxy meander - third time's the charm on these Minecraft quilts! {The Dude's, neighbor's.} And the binding is more Kona, using up some of the leftover grey strips.
