I know – it’s Monday. That means it’s release day for Block 3 for the Moda Be My Neighbor Sew Along, and you know what? I’m ready, kind of; but I’m going to have to make it quick, because not only is it Block 3 Day for the Be My Neighbor project, there are also about a zillion other things going on this week, that I’m determined to cram in so I feel SUUUUUPER accomplished by Friday!
Okay – for starters, this 3rd block in our Be My Neighbor quilt should technically look pretty much like this (with your fabrics of course):
We all remember, however, that I’m the weird girl though, right…and this quilt represents something a little different to me…which means that (as previously indicated) I was going to need a house that utilized Mon Ami’s Moutarde Grunge, so that it looked a little like a certain rather important house in my (favorite) neighborhood:
Now – you know that sound that a record makes when you pull the arm/needle across it as it’s spinning? Yeah, cue that.
The thing is, it has been crazy busy around here, and I’m a little behind. So – my house is done, kind of:
As you can see, my trolley-instead-of-a-mailbox still needs wheels, and there on the roof, my bird-that-won’t-actually-be-a-bird per se’ is still in ‘concept’ mode; but you can see the colors anyway. I used the following Grunges:
I’ll share the ‘bird’ grunges when I get to them. Hoping a little later this week. But for now – It’s been a busy week already and it’s only Monday!
Next big day this week is Wednesday when Sweetwater’s Treehouse Club arrives. Nope – can’t wait for that one either!
The last big thing this week is that Modern Heritage BOM block 3 kits ship out on Thursday. Of course I can’t show you the full image of what they’ll look like, but I can give you a little sneak peek:
Anyway, I wanted to be sure you have the Block 3 blueprints before the day is done so you can get started on your next house. They’re right here: be-my-neighbor-block-3
I hope you’ll share your blocks and tag me @serendipitywoods so I can see your lovely work! As always, be sure to also hashtag #ModaBeMyNeighbor so everyone can see your work too. Until next time –
