Quick Look And A Question

It is my turn to be the Queen Bee in my Sew Bee Wonky Group. I wanted a Valentine Quilt and took my inspiration from this quilt of Victoria's. The blocks have started to come in and I'm so excited! Here is a quick look at what I have so far.
Also on the design wall are these happy, wonky, maverick stars. I'm teaching I'm A Maverick Star and my Breathe quilt at Quilt Walk in a couple of weeks. There are a few openings if you would like to join me. I gave my Maverick Star quilt to a very courageous little boy and don't feel right about stealing even for a little while. You can read about him here. So I'm making another. It's good mindless sewing after a couple of busy stressful weeks. And I'm sure I can find this one a good home too when I'm done. Maybe another Happy Chemo Quilt.

Speaking of Happy Chemo you still have a few days to get your quilt in for a chance at a fat quarter stack. Email me if you need my address. Also there will be a room set up at Quilt Walk where you can help make quilts for this deserving cause. So in between classes you can join other great quilters having fun doing what you love, make a few new friends and help bring comfort to someone that is going through the not so fun experience of Chemo. Hope you will join me.


Now for my question; I was visiting blogs yesterday and every time I went to leave a little love and encouragement Blogger had me popping up as anonymous. I tried to fix it but couldn't figure out how. The first couple of blogs I went to wouldn't allow anonymous comments so I gave up on leaving comments. Has this ever happened to you? What did you do to fix it? Any help would be appreciated.

  1. Love the Valentine theme. Great blocks for what I'm sure is going to be a fantastic quilt. Once upon a time blogger reverted me to anonymous. Go to you profile page and see what blogger says. Most recently blogger changed my normal profile email to my other email and published the complete email address for the comments! You should be able to change it through "change or revise profile."

  2. Blogger...well, sometimes it just does what it wants to. I had the same problem, but the only solution was time. After a few days it was suddenly OK again.

    Your quilt is STILL on the way. I hope soon. I may tape it to my husband as he goes out the door. :)

  3. It was the same for me on Blogger yesterday - I'm glad it wasn't just me that Blogger took exception to!

  6. That happened to me when Blogger had that major meltdown for a few days a couple of weeks ago.

    You know Blogger -- it gets temperamental from time to time. It'll be back to its old self in time.

  7. You really will be ready for Valentines Day. Love the Maverick Stars.
    I haven't had a problem since Blogger went down completely a week or so ago.

  8. I love those hearts! That is going to be a terrific quilt! The Maverick Stars are nice too. I love the mindless sewing that is involved in making them. I have been having trouble leaving comments too. It's been an ongoing problem. Sometimes it works and sometimes not. But I seem to be able to leave one now.
