Blogger has been very, very good to me since I started my blog. I've had an easy time of figuring out 'things' I need to know. However, as of two days ago there has been a problem. With every comment I receive on my blog I get an email notification. Or I did. Now I'm getting nothing. As one who likes to respond to comments, this has caused me one very large headache. SO. I will apologize now for not responding in a timely manner. I appreciate every single comment. The fact that you would take the time to view my blog and then leave a comment means the world to me.
This is the test part. While I've tried everything and contacted support on this issue, I thought maybe that one blog post was a fluke. Maybe I should try another post. With my fingers crossed and not much hope...I'll give it a try.
After I finished my Phantom Triangle quilt, I still had a good stack of scrap blocks that needed a new life. Instead of getting my 'creative' mind on, I got my 'simple' mind on!
|28" x 40 1/2"|
I grabbed those 2 1/4" hand dyed and shot cotton squares and thought...Granny squares...sort of! In order to make enough blocks, I also grabbed my grey scraps. You can tell from the picture there are at least three different grey's, it's actually four.
I had enough blocks for six squares, if I were to add some sashing. Which you can see I did! The blue is Moda Pool. I bought it for another quilt and decided to use the rest for this quilt. When I say the rest, I mean I just had enough for the sashing with no left overs!
It still wasn't a usable size at that point, so a border was in order! The border is Kona Steel, as is the backing.
Keeping with the simple theme, I quilted each square in 1/2" straight lines. Randomly, of course, as well as the sashing and border. The binding was all scraps! I love using scraps! And having the majority of the binding from scraps of bindings is as good as it gets!
I know this is a far cry from my recent Phantom Quilt! There is something sweet and simple about these kind of quilts.
I'm praying blogger is working again, I'll receive email notifications and can comment in a normal way to your comments. I hate being frustrated, especially by a darn computer!
Has anyone had this problem before? And if so, how did you get it fixed?
