Whew – What a weekend! I’m thrilled to report that among other things, I got to watch my #4 play college lacrosse and I also sewed LOTS. Most importantly, I got a few more blocks ahead of my Be My Neighbor sew along piecing so I don’t fall behind as I did for my LAME-O Block 4 post, when I literally didn’t get my block done in time for the Monday blueprints release. Ack. Nobody likes to be behind the 8 ball like that.
My block turned out like this:
Before you ask – I’m not a fan of it. I sort of got stuck for a while on the fact that roofs are historically certain colors or shades of earthy tones and I’m annoyed that I chose the color Wren which frankly I love – just not up against New Russet Orange, also a perfectly happy Grunge shade. My slightly imperfect diamond shapes are created from Juniper Berry Aqua Blue, which is one of my MOST favorites!
As mentioned, I’m several blocks ahead of this one and can confidently say I’ve gotten over the idea that my roof colors need to be earthy. I learn, by golly…every day I learn 🙂
This week’s BMN block blueprints are below. If you’re following along – I hope you’ll tag me at Instagram! @serendipitywoods, so I can see how your blocks are coming along!
Cheers and Happy Monday 🙂
