The Double Shoofly Quilting Block
The Double Shoofly Quilt Block is another quilt block. The Double Shoofly is like the regular Shoofly...on steroids.
Looking at the grid lines, you can see the 5 patches across, and 5 patches down
The easiest way to make this block is to make 4 half square triangles for the 4 corners. Planning each grid to finish at 2 inches, the half square triangles should be made to finish at 4 inches, as each half square triangles covers 4 grids.
When the corners are done, all you have left is to sew some 2 1/2 inch raw squares together per the colors on the picture.
If you want to make a large quilt quickly, 5-patch quilts with 2-inch raw grids work up quickly. Check out some of the other easy 5-patch blocks on the site.
