4th of July Weekend....in the middle of an 'online retreat' with a group I belong to called "stashbusters". I had 34 houses done and needed 8 more to set them 6 X 7 so I thought this would be a good project for this weekend.

When I got the houses laid out, they looked SO uniform...boring. I was thinking of just regular sashes and maybe 9-patch cornerstones, but that didn't quite do it for me either. So...I decided to add 'twist and turn' triangles to the edges of the blocks. I think I like it. The two upper blocks are the 'test' ones I have added the triangles to so far. I like the idea of having 1/2 the blocks uphill, half down hill, and I still may use a sashing to contain the blocks. Much better than setting them straight!Posted by Picasa
