Draw a diagonal line on the wrong side of both of your fabric B squares. Place one square right sides together with your Fabric A rectangle.

Stitch right on the line you just drew.

Trim the corner off and press towards the corner fabric.

Repeat on the other side. Stitch, trim and press. Your ‘roof’ is complete.

Next, take your Fabric C and stitch one Fabric D to one side and the other Fabric D to the other side.

Repeat with your remaining Fabric C piece and two Fabric D pieces.

Now, you have three 2.5” x 4.5” rectangles. Sew them all together in the order shown above.

It’s time to add our windows and doors! On the paper side of your fusible of choice, draw one rectangle 2.5” x1” and two squares 0.75” x 0.75”. Fuse the to your window and door fabrics. Trim and press them onto your block in the desired location.

I used a lite fusible so I decided to just whimsically straight stitch around each of my windows and the three sides of the door that wouldn’t get caught in the later seam. And with that…your ‘Mount Home’ block is finished!
