Unnamed/#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 cuppa coffee or sodapop, grab a pilluh, and sit a spell.

I’ve encountered a few blocks while searching books this past couple years that are called ‘Unnamed’. They have good reason I’m sure to leave them without a name. But for me this one would be called “Knocked It Outta the Park”.

I was fortunate enough to locate a YouTube tutorial on setting in piecing for quilt blocks. It was provided by Fon’s and Porter and to them I want to shout out a huge Thank You! After watching it, I had success, Finally!

There may be hope for me yet on that unique Ohio Star block after this little teaching aid. I need to mention that I don’t have the little tool they promoted in this video. But I have to say that after sewing since a youngster, I’m pretty confident in my ability on where to place a 1/4 inch mark. I have photos to prove it.

And this is the way it’s supposed to work….no puckers and lays flat.

Take a gander- Ozark slang for the day

I’m using this term to go along with today’s topic. I could have said I took a gander at that YouTube video. But instead I mentioned watching it. Glad you all took a gander at my blog post today and I hope you are all having great success in this year’s A to Z Challenge.
