Move 3, Qb1, further limited the mobility of the black King. It removed b3 and b5 as escape squares. The black King had 2 remaining escape squares: c3, which would have been met with mate in the next move, Qc2#; and d5, which would also have led to mate in the next move, Qe4#. The move Bb4 created a small escape hatch, the b5 square, through which the black King would have escaped, had it been given a chance. Thank you for explaining it, now I get it!!
