Combination Star/#AtoZ

The April A to Z Blog Challenge is an annual blogging event in which participants blog every day (except Sundays) one post for each letter of the alphabet for the entire month. My theme for the year will be “Quilts and Ozark Slang.” So gitchur coffee or sodapop, grab a pilluh, and sit a spell.

The Letter today is C



I’ve got to admit, there are a lot of ‘star’ quilt blocks out there. And I’m not very sure why this one is called simply “Combination Star” except for possibly the combination of diagonal squares in each corner to give it a different appearance. I will have to do a tally of just how many star blocks are in my selection for the A to Z Challenge. Til then, I’ll just  ask, Do you see the star in this block?


For the Daily Ozark slang, I present “Chester Drawers”. This is the place you’ll find a stash of my quilts. In other words, a “Dresser”. Or where you store your socks, pajamas, tshirts, etc.

My mother was good about proper grammer due, I believe, to the fact that her mother was a one-room schoolhouse teacher. Grammer was her thing. So around my home, this word wasn’t used so much. Maybe it slipped out now and then? I don’t remember if it ever did. But we all recognized its use when used by others.

There are many more wonderful blogs this year that I hope you can spend a couple minutes reading. All you have to do is click here and select something that interests you. To read about the A to Z Challenge and what we are all about, click here.



  1. I’m not sure I see the star but I think that’s more because I’m looking for something with five points. It is a pretty quilt block though.

    I’ve never heard the phrase Chester Drawers. I can see where the phrase might not sit well with someone who liked proper grammar like your mother.

      • It’s really my lack of knowledge with quilting which is why I understand what a star is in a quilt. My grandmother made beautiful quilts but sadly I didn’t pick up her skills. I’ve only made one in my life and it was a simple block pattern.
