THE STORY BEHIND THE DESIGN

BLOCK 24 - BE MY NEIGHBOR

Hi Everyone and Happy Blockheads day!  Today is my block, Be My Neighbor. 

 

This block was inspired by my love of Mr. Rogers.  Being raised on a farm, I never experienced the neighborhood life like most.  When I watched Mr. Rogers as a child,  I loved the beginning when they would pan over the miniature town.  All the homes lined up in different colors.  I just thought it was so amazing.  

 

I created this block with a dark periwinkle background with bright colors for the little homes so that they pop.  I wanted it to be clean and modern so it is a very simple block and fun and easy to make.  I hope you enjoy making it and adding it to your Blockhead collection.  You can download the block HERE.    

Also check out how all the the other blockhead designers created their block.

COLOR INSPIRATION

INPISRATION

INSPIRATION :: Although this collection feels very Americana, it actually was inspired by my trip to Europe last summer.  While in Amsterdam, we visited a small farm with huge windmills about 20 minutes outside the city limits.  It had all the iconic farm animals as well as some amazing windmills.  The farm was so charming.  It's ironic that I was raised on a farm and I had to go across the world to be inspired.  I guess that’s how design works, you never know when or where inspiration will bite.
