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.
I’m not sure if there would be an unspoken rule that when a block says the name of a color in it (like Red Cross or Yellow Lily), if you have to use that color fabric or not? Well I reckon I just broke that rule if it exists.
The Red Cross I block was not done in a solid red as you can see. It is certainly less cross-looking in the floral print. Not sure I like it but it’s done and it’ll do for me.
Ozark Slang of the Day:
Ruinate. Definition: Ruin or spoil something. Example: I hope the red white and blue fabric doesn’t ruinate my quilt block.
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.
Nice quilt! This post reminds me of a toy I had as a little girl: a square box filled with cubes, and every surface had a unique pattern: all red, white, blue or yellow, half/half, and so on. You could create all kinds of artwork: https://www.amazon.de/Musterw%C3%BCrfel-N1-Nikitin-Material-zur-Fr%C3%BChf%C3%B6rderung/dp/B000HKESBA
I remember those! That would be something to purchase for my school-agers at daycare this summer. Thanks for the link! And thanks for stopping by 🙂
It’s amazing the difference a pattern makes – and it’s also interesting to see what breaking a pattern up into a quilt does to the overall look. It gives it a completely different feel to the original pattern.

Yes I like the pattern of the floral fabric but not on all the blocks. Doesn’t have the one size fits all ability.
I like the floral version, but it does look different than the solid design. Weekends In Maine
