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 cuppa coffee or sodapop, grab a pilluh, and sit a spell.
This quilt block is going to be in the top 3 favorites for me personally. I am partial to these basket-esque blocks and this one gives the appearance of a mirrored image basket. The fact that its title doesn’t reflect that is no matter to me. It still has the style I love. And it’s not difficult; so there’s that.
Something I haven’t discussed is fussy-cut quilt blocks. The Queen’s Crown could take on a whole new bejeweled look with some changes in the points. For a scrap fabric hoarder like yours truly, this is definitely something I will consider. The only decision left is whether to go for a saphire, emerald or topaz colored ‘crown’? Or maybe all the above such as in the picture below I’ve found via Pinterest.
Quitchur makes the Ozark slang list for letter ‘Q’. We have another instance of combining two words for one. Quit your is replaced with the slang and said when you are in a hurry to complete a statement. Such as ‘Quitchur lollygaggin and hurry up or we’ll be late!’ I hope you can assertain from the context that lollygaggin is a synonym for taking your sweet time. I am guilty as charged for using this one. The danger for not listening to this first attempt at speeding them up is that in the next breath, Quit Your comes out very clearly and you know you are about to get left behind.
There are many more wonderful blogs this year that I hope you canspend 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.
