Be My Neighbor

I love, love, love quilts with houses on them but -- except for that single red schoolhouse block -- I haven't made a house quilt yet.  I've got patterns. Lots and lots of patterns. But there's always been something else to do first.

Last week, I stumbled across the Moda Be My Neighbor Pattern Club and printed the first two patterns. And then I actually got a few quality hours with my sewing machine...


These blocks are HUGE. I know, the measurements are right there on the pattern, but my brain wasn't quilt processing how big an 18" block actually would be. I rarely work with pieces this big and, after making these first two blocks I don't plan on changing my ways.

What this quilt really has going for it, besides houses, is that I can make it with my existing fabric stash and it'll be a great utility quilt when it's done.

Love your blocks. I've been saving these patterns in hopes of finding time to make it someday.

I just ran across this one today. I printed the first patterns and hope to dig into my scraps tomorrow :) I'll enjoy sewing along with you.

I think this pattern looks like fun, too, I have been collecting the patterns, but with 59 UFO's on my list I think I will not be starting it this year, but who knows??? I will be happy to see yours as you go along!

Big blocks make for fast quilts :) Love your color choices. Have fun!

This looks so much nicer in fabric instead of grayscale! I am tempted to do this one, but not sure how I'll proceed with a color plan. I will be watching yours grow. lol
