Minecraft Quilt Extra Blocks: Iron Golem & Heart

Happy Minecraft Monday #32! I can't believe it's been over 6 months. The sew along page has over 11,600 views. Wow! I never would have imagined how fun this would be.

This week, the extra blocks are Iron Golem and a heart! :) I'm kind of loving the heart.



First up is the Iron Golem..



For him, you'll need a creamish color, light brown, two shades of grey, black and red.

Cutting:

Cream: (1) 3 1/2 x 12 1/2"
       (2) 3 1/2 x 5"
       (2) 2 x 5"
       (1) 2 x 3 1/2"

Light Brown: (1) 2 x 12 1/2"
             (2) 2 x 3 1/2"

            (1) 2 x 2"

And you should have an Iron Golem! We just got back from vacation at my parents' house and then school started, so I haven't gotten my blocks sewn up yet.  But he should look like this:



I'll edit my post and add them in when I get a chance to piece them.
Let me know if there are any discrepancies in the diagram/directions!
