House Block Tutorial
Background - two 4.5" squares, two 1.5" x 6.5" strips
Roof - one 4.5" x 8.5" rectangle
9-Patch - five dark 2.5" squares, four light or contrasting 2.5" squares
Draw a line from corner to corner on your background 4.5" squares - using the 'flip-n-sew' method add corners to the roof - large flying geese unit. I save the bonus triangles for HSTs.
Using the 2.5" squares, sew your 9-patch together. Add the background strips to the sides of the 9-patch and then attach the roof.
A very quick block that uses up those scraps. Unfinished size - 8.5" x 10.5"
You could easily use any 6.5" unfinished block as your house base. Don't like an odd size block - add a 1.5" x 10.5" strip to either side and make it a square.
