Be My Neighbor Quilt Along Block 6

17 Comments

Moving along to catch up, block six is next.  I picked a large scrap of purple fabric for the house as the bottom bit of this pattern has a piece 18-inches wide.  It has some squares on point at the bottom, and these still look like flower boxes to me.  So, I pulled some flower fabric to use.  I love this snapdragon print, but it is to close to the purple I have selected for the house.

So, I went back to the daffodils. More contrast will look better.

OK, I like that so I cut the required pieces. I double checked the sizes this time!

Lots of HSTs meant drawing a lot of lines.

The top of the house has five flying geese sections that are not the same, so I laid out the pieces carefully, chain pieced, then laid them out again to check the placement.

Then the top section was pieced.

Assembling the top two rows, I got this.  The points are so far off I cannot stand it.

And so the streak continues, I have to frog something on every one of these blocks.

Sewing again with more pins to keep the edges lined up. It isn’t perfect, but it is as good as it is going to get.

This block has a lot of pieces. Carefully following the steps, it went together.

Chain piecing all the squares on point helped streamline the assembly.

Finally, all done!

So, now I am caught up. The next two blocks are on the list for completion in April.  Are you sewing this week?

  1. Loving it!

  2. Lovely! Each block just gets better. Happy sewing.

  3. This is so cute and your blocks look perfect.

  4. I am not much of a sewer (let alone quilter!) but I can definitely appreciate your work! I also love the floral fabrics you have, what a find!

    Thanks for commenting on my post at Just for Fun! I have really been having fun with the oxide inks. I have been posting those ideas on my personal blog, too. What colors did you buy?

  5. I’m working ahead because I’m always behind! LOL I’m just starting Block #11 and this is such a fun project. I’m also working on a few other projects as I cannot work on one from start to finish–it’s an affliction or addiction, not sure which. But always big fun in my sewing room. :o)

  6. I like the little floral blocks in there.

  7. My friend and I are making these blocks. Find looking at your blocks gives us ideas and makes one us think outside her comfort zone. Thanks for posting. Barbara and Mindy, Jacksonville FL

  8. Matching triangle points was a nightmare to me when I first tried, but now it is easier.Love the daffodils, what super fabric.

  9. I would like to down-load the’be my-neighbor-quilt blocks”, but am unable to locate them.

  10. So good you persevered with this block it is very nice!! Love the daffodil fabric, is hard to find over here.

  11. This is so pretty! Quilting is so foreign to me, never having tried it even though I sewed for 30+ years! I am always amazed at what quilters make from little squares of fabric.

  12. It was so interesting to follow down the blog and see the block coming together. Thanks for sharing your process.

  13. Another great block. I think the daffodils were a great choice. Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!

  14. Another beautifully “built” house.

  15. Visiting from Quilting is More Fun Than Housework and house blocks ALWAYS catch my eye so I clicked on your post to visit! Loving this house with the beautiful yellow flowers out front! I’m going to check out the Be My Neighbor QAL.

  16. Love your flower boxes. A very pretty little block.
