~A Workshop and Weird Happenings with Blogger~


This is the quilt Past Times by Lynne Wilson at Steph's that I fell in love with
It's a Fat 1/4 quilt made with 22 fat 1/4's




These are the fabrics I put together when I went 'shopping' on my shelf




And these are the first few blocks that are on their way
To me it looks rather 'wild' with fabrics I normally wouldn't put together but this quilt lends itself so much to that
A mixture of traditional and country fabrics
And I love them all!!!!!!

*************

Yesterday on arriving home I thought I would check in on my Dashboard and lo-and-behold under where it says blogs that  follow there were some really undesirable posts...
I'm wondering if anyone else has had this happen to them?

These posts go on and on and I seem to have lost all my regular posts that I follow but maybe they are there right at the end wherever that might be!!!

*************

Now I'm off to start putting more blocks together and off to a Sing-a-long with the gang from our Melodrama!!!

I would immediately change my blogger password, flag the blogs as inappropriate, and report the incident. My blogger forgets all the blogs I'm following periodically, but it usually remembers them when I refresh the browser. I've heard this happens to many others, although I've never heard of the problem you're naving. I hope you get it all straightened out!

It does look like a wild quilt, but it works. I think your fabric choices will work out really well. Very odd happenings with blogger for you, none here so far.

Good on you for 'shopping your shelf'. That's a great bundle of fabrics you've chosen. This quilt should look fantastic!

My dearest heart! What is this strange thing on Blogger? Are you referring to unknown BLOGS that are appearing on your "Blogs I Follow?" I have not seen this happen though I do know that some people have had strange things happen due to either a spam attack on their systems....I hope you find out the problem! Your treasures here are as inspiring as always and I so wish I had the time to sew!!!!!!

Off to sing with the gang? I love that you have catch the bug of singing, acting, THEATRE! We are having a poetry group meet at our house this Tuesday and we are thrilled. To get together with a community of kindred spirits, there is nothing like it! HAVE FUN and I do hope you find out the problem with Blogger! Anita

Hello Dzintra,

Such a lovely bundle of fabrics for your latest project, especially love the blue ones down the bottom.
Sounds like someone has hacked into those blogs. I have seen that happen on a few people who don't blog very often.
Have fun singing.
Bev.

Love the fabrics you have chosen. They will all fit lovely together. Weird things happen with Blogger... Change your password and report it! No, never had such problem, but it happens the blogs I follow just disappear for so to appear again after some time....

That is going to be such a fabulous quilt. I like your fabric combinations. I'm not sure I've had the same blogger issue as you but I have looked at who looks at my blog and found some of he links go back to some very adult sites. It really doesn't make sense at all. Maybe their hobby is quilting? It hasn't happened for ages though, or I haven't checked in a while. I always make sure I delete any spam comments or comments I'm not sure about because they sometimes have links to other sites.

I tend to prefer quilts that are made with uncommon fabric themes. Looks beautiful so far!

What a beautiful quilt and great fabrics!

That is very strange thing with blogger, you should change your password and try to check your computer for viruses!

Hugs,
