Pinwheel Square/ #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.

The choice for Letter P was decided for me since I want to (mainly) stick with 2 fabrics per block. So here you have a type of pinwheel in a square as the title describes. It was not difficult at all, no pivoting needed (sigh of relief), and I didn’t have bobbin trouble again. Made it to the 16th letter and feeling the end is distinctly within reach at last. It’s a good day!

All that being said, ‘Pritnear’ is my Ozark slang of the day. This combo of 2 words into one is a way to say it quicker and more efficiently. Why waste your time when you can lessen the number of words you use in a sentence? My example for you: “She was pritnear the last one to leave the church.” Definition: Pretty near or almost the last one.

Do you feel as if the end of the 2018 Challenge is pritnear finished or still a long distance away?

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.

Pavement Pattern/#AtoZChallenge

During the month of April, I’m participating in the Blogging From A to Z Challenge for my 4th year in a row – 3 of which are on this blog. Each day, except Sundays, there will be a post for the letter of the day as well as keeping with my personal theme of Quilts and Quotes. Feel free to leave a comment! I’d love to hear from you! Also check out the other A to Z’ers in the comment section of the Official A to Z Blog Page.

“Should I give up, or should I just keep chasing pavement, even if it leads nowhere?” Adele

This block is apparently supposed to resemble brick pavement. With the quote above, I attempted some views around town. They went something like this….

It’s lovely the way they enhanced this intersection in our downtown historic district.


I find a bigger beauty in where there’s no pavement. Where land meets sky and colors are not man-made.

Quilts, though they are made by hand, give us a chance to mimic shapes, colors and scenes around us. I’m sure the name Pavement could also be substituted with Tiles, Square in a Square or Four Windows. And the color is all in the hands of the maker. I’m just thankful for photographs to get me through this post.


Join me again tomorrow for more of the April A to Z Blog Challenge 2017!
