Blockhead #5

“Two of Five” by Barbara Groves

is this week’s block. For me it’s a traditional “Hole in the Barndoor” block but when I read the instructions I came upon Barbara’s explanation: Two of Five? Where did that name come from? This is Mary’s favorite quilt block and she calls it a Shoo Fly. I’ve always called it a Churn Dash. We decided on Two of Five – Mary and I are two of five sisters!” So the name makes perfect sense! Isn’t it interesting how many names one simple block can have?
