Similar Blocks, Different Names

Have you ever noticed that block names can change depending on who's talking about the block and/or the color arrangement in the block?
Sometimes this block is known as Sisters Choice, other times as Farmer's Daughter.  I see some call it Rabbit's Foot and others, Butterfly at the Crossroads.  There's a shape and arrangement I particularly like about this block which is most clearly shown as Butterfly at the Crossroads.  The block most makes me think of birds, though!

I made four corners and am playing around with center divider blocks.  Traditional...,


or slightly wider.

Plaids, prints, plains, or a combination?  Lights, mediums, darks?  To make or not to make?  I don't know yet.  I'm just playing.

I hope you're having a great weekend!

  1. Whatever it's called, it s a pretty block! I like #3 - all the different aspects in this one do it for me :)

  2. I love the variations - what a surprise. The narrow divider strips are my favorite.

  3. Some time ago, I purchased Barbara Bachman's Encyclopedia of quilting blocks, and have had fun looking them up and seeing the same thing that you noticed. You have a really great display of the different blocks and how small changes can shift a block's emphasis.
