Jeepers, It’s the Creeper!

You Scooby Doo fans will get the reference.  , My husband and kids are huge Scooby Doo fans and have all seen every episode (multiple times).

This is a different sort of ‘Creeper’…the Minecraft sort.  My kids are very into Minecraft right now so I decided to make a quilt for The Blue One for his upcoming birthday.  I mean how hard could it be – a stack of different colored green 6″ squares, add a few black ones, and ta-da….

Notice anything missing?  Oh yeah….I didn’t have any black in my stash so need to make a quick stop on my way home tonight.  Tomorrow it will look much more ‘Creeper-ish’.

I’m also adding a nice wide black border and likely using minky for the back.  If all goes well I’ll be taking this to the long-arm this weekend.  We shall see.

I’ve gotten this far without either The Pink One or The Blue One seeing it.  Here’s to hoping that I can get it all the way finished without them finding out.

Linking up to Lee @ Freshly Pieced.  Happy WIP Wednesday everyone!

About msminnesota

I'm a wife, mom of two (one blue, one pink), and I work full time. Our family loves to camp, and we're often on mini adventures during the summer. My fall/winter/spring/rainy day hobby is quilting. I started about 10 years ago, then put everything away when The Blue One was born. A few years ago a good friend decided to take up this 'hobby' and I've been back at it ever since. She's my partner in crime (A.K.A. 'the enabler'). I have no aspirations of becoming a quilt designer - I'm just not that good at geometry (I rely on my math major/computer programmer husband to help with piecing backs at times!). This little blog is my way of chronicling my quilting adventures. Occasionally I post about non-quilting things as well. Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to say HI! IG: wannabequilter

    I’ve heard lots of people talking about minecraft. I’ve been too busy to check it out. A quilt of it? Sure looks like it would be smooth going.

    I bet they’re going to love the quilt. After looking at all the Mario quilts in the blog world (was that last year?) a Minecraft quilt is a nice change! Love the bigger squares and can’t wait to see it finished.

    I love seeing the creeper quilts and pillows that people are making. It is such a clever idea. My husband has been asking for one and I have been resisting but I am slowly weakening though. It is such a cute quilt. Can not wait to see your finished quilt.
