CLICK ON THIS PICTURE TO DOWNLOAD YOUR SETTING PATTERN

  • The finished quilt will measure 68″ x 84 1/2″.
  • There are 16 blocks in the quilt top.  The rows are separated by horizontal sashing strips.
  • These are very scrappy blocks so exact yardage for a set number of fabrics has not been calculated. Mix your favorite Moda prints to create your colorful neighborhood!

Fabric Requirements:
16 House Blocks: Assorted Prints & Solids
Background and Sashing: 4 -1/2 yards
Borders: 1 – 1/4 yards
Binding: 2/3 yard
Backing: 4 – 3/4 yards


For a quilt using the same background for blocks, sashing and borders, you will need 5 – 3/4 yards total.  For scrappy backgrounds, sashing and borders, allow for just a little bit more fabric.

Only a couple of blocks to go and we'll have completed the Be My Neighbor Quilt A Long
