Block pictures for the U3A




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.
