Strip sets were an option in the mid-19th century and here are two ways to do it. Susi-ra stacked her blocks up making 8" strips and alternated with narrower strips.
Mamifleur (who lives in France---
can you tell from the tile roof?)
She turned the blocks on point and used 60 blocks. 10 to a strip x 6 = 60.
You need triangles to fill out the strip.
For an 8" finished block you will want to cut squares 12-5/8" and cut each into four triangles as shown so you have a straight grain against the strips.
