Sometimes simple is best.
Here's a circa 1910 block with tiny houses.
As we all know, houses can get too big.
Efficient might be better.
I'd never noticed this simple two-patch shaded so it looked like a house.
This could be very useful.
In fact, I have been woefully negligent about the whole pattern.
Here it is shaded to look like an arrow, a quilt from about the same
time from Molly at the Fourth Corner.
Mollie knew where the pattern originated.

STOP THE PRESSES!
It's not in the new Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns.
and it's too late NOW.
Don't tell Ann and Sara.
As soon as you get your new third edition your are going to have to write in on page 347
under Two Patches Horizontal or Vertical Division
Hearth & Home, 1907
Then shade it like a house
and write in From a quilt about 1910.
Well, now I see it is in the new edition of the Encyclopedia
It's 1718.5 as a nine patch.
