Owen’s Creeper quilt

This quilt was made for my grandson Owen who likes to play Minecraft and asked me if I would make him a Creeper (a character from Minecraft) quilt.  He walked into my house one day and said “Grandma, if you ever have time I have an idea for a quilt that you could make for me.” Of course I was interested, he then showed me some pictures on the internet and we looked through my fabric to get an idea of colours. So I made this quilt as a gift for his eleventh birthday last month, it's twin bed size.

I got some family help and we decided that the Square Dance pantograph by Anne Bright was just the right compliment to the design of the quilt.

I sent if off to Owen for his birthday and I got a phone call, he loves his quilt, grandma and grandson happy!

Owen’s Creeper quilt is my ‘finish’ for the second quarter of the 2016 Finish A Long, be sure to check out some of the many other finished projects, and perhaps join in for the third quarter.

The finish line is just the beginning of a whole new race.

  1. I love all that green and the Minecraft quilts are such fun to make. I know that the gamers love them too. Thank you for participating in the FAL, on behalf of the 2016 global hosts.
