Here are pictures of schoolhouse blocks made by friends and also some other ways to arrange half square triangles. The arrangements work because of value (light/dark) contrasts. If making school house blocks for a child why not put a face in the window or a cat or dog peeping out. What if a fish was swimming along or a bug crawling up the glass!! Our houses are shown against a light daytime background but you could have a night sky. You could use the same two fabrics for everything except the sky, narrow strips and windows and door or go very scrappy.
