Spoonflower Tip: JoyfulRose Minecraft Inspired Grass Block Pillow

I received a question last week about making pillows using my grass block design. Thought I'd post a quick tip in case anyone else has the same question. :)

I've taken screenshots of both of my grass block designs: the regular and the rotated. Click the image below to see a detailed picture. Pink lines mark a 20" square (about 50cm). Blue line indicates a yard.

If you purchase 1 yard of fabric, you can make one 20" pillows/cases. You'd have about 16" of fabric leftover.

If you purchase 2 yards of fabric, you can make two 20" pillows/cases. You'd have about 32" of fabric leftover (great for a little throw blanket!)

Remember that if you cut 20" squares and sew them together, they'll end up about 18" or 19" depending on your seam allowance. :)

Hope that helps!

My boys need bigger Minecraft costumes so I recently placed an order for more fabric from Spoonflower. Shortly after, I realized I made a mistake in my ordering.

Christina - I want to thank you for your design!!  I have a 10 year old grand son who is wild about Minecraft.  I have 6 grandsons and am making quilts for all of them.  I chose your 3x3 pattern and blocked with black flannel and then machine "quilt-stitched" between each block.  Did not get pics of him when we gave it to him (sorry that I did not have my camera handy as he was super excited), but did take pics of the finished product.  Thanks again!"
Thanks for the pics Tracy; your grandsons are so lucky to have you!

Holi 2014: Festival of Colors in Spanish Fork, Utah

Today we went to the Festival of Colors! It was our 4th time going, and I finally captured the shot I've been wanting to get since 2009.
The timing was perfect!

We drove up about 5 minutes before the 11am "throwing of the colors", paid to park in the lot across the street (totally worth it), and my husband and I ran to the grass in front of the temple while my sisters watched our 4 kiddos.

Set up the tripod, set up the camera, took a few test shots, and the countdown began! I felt like a paparazzo while I took picture after picture. After, I played back the pics I'd taken and was absolutely giddy!

A huge thank you to my awesome husband and wonderful family. :)

Here's the pic in black and white and color:
Fun, huh?!

10 minutes later, we packed everything away, got our kiddos, and the whole group of us went onto the grounds of the Lotus Krishna temple in Spanish Fork, Utah.

We bought our colors, played, and had a fun time participating in the 12:00pm "throwing of the colors". (Don't worry, the babies were covered up during the actual throwing. The rest of us wore sunglasses and bandanas around our mouths and noses)

A couple of my husband's co-workers were in town from India, and we had a great time with them!
Here's the before and after pic of our group:
Aren't my son's "after" faces hilarious?! They enjoyed the festival, except when they got chalk thrown into their eyes. Poor kiddos. Next year maybe we'll just have them go under the pavilion for the actual throwing of the colors!

Me, my husband, and our sweet tiny girl after the color throwing:
A fun, fun day!

And yes, that baby sling has come in very handy. :)
