I wanted to try something totally different. It's a bit wonky, but with a little patience and more coffee, it won't be. I was inspired by a development of homes near here that are nicknamed the "Easter egg houses" because of the colors.
First, you will need a fat eighth piece of background and two scraps contrasting/coordinating colors, a piece of 8-1/2 x 11 inches of freezer paper and 8-1/2 inch ruler (or similar) and your rotary cutter. I will show you how it's done with pink paper (easier to see).
Trim your freezer paper to 8-1/2 inches. Mark the scrap 'bottom'.
Fold the 8-1/2 inch square in thirds, shiny side down. Unfold. Trim off the top third and label "top".
Now take the lower two thirds of the square and fold it into thirds (widthwise), it will look like you have two rows of three blocks (folded). Unfold.
Now take the upper left corner and upper right corner, bring to the center (looks like a paper prairie point). Unfold.
Now can you see what you are making? Use your ruler and designated for paper rotary cutter and cut apart as shown.
Piece the large background triangles to the center triangle (roof), be sure you have a larger amount on the top (you may not want a flat peak). This is a very wonky flying goose. If you look closely, I unpicked it to ensure I had a peaked roof line.
Add the top background piece to the top of your house and the bottom background piece to the bottom of the house.
Now your house is almost done. Using your 8-1/2 inch ruler, trim to size, centering the house as you like. The freezer paper is reusable and you can make your own wonky village now.
If you don't use an inches ruler, then a piece of A4 paper will work and you can use a metric ruler. This is not an exact block until the very end and it's trimmed to be the correct size.
I hope you've enjoyed this block. I'd love to see the blocks you make!
