Emailing Blog Posts

If you have already read this post on the 15th or the 17th or the 20th, you can skip it and get back to your quiltmaking.

Google will be removing FeedBurner from its suite of products. I don’t know when. They sent me an email some time ago and I thought I would deal with it later. Well, it is later, unfortunately.

This means that if you get an email from this blog every morning, you will need to make some changes. I have a list of subscribers and have subscribed all ‘active’ users. Active users are people who have verified their request via some link or two factor authentication. If I have time, I will work on subscribing the rest of you. As a result, if you get an email saying you have subscribed to this blog, then click on the link and continue reading. If you do not get an email, follow the directions below.

There are two ways to make the change.

Subscribe via email box

First, I have added an email subscription box to the right sidebar. It is right under the search box. Put your email in and click subscribe.

In the comments section of any post, check to make sure you are logged in.  In the image, I am logged in (see arrow). If you are not logged in, you will see a form asking for your name, email and URL. If you do not have your own URL, you can leave that blank.

If you are logged in, or once you log in, click the bottom option, “Notify me of new posts by email”. You will receive an email asking you to verify your email, then you should receive a new email every time I publish a blog post.

Email me if you have a problem at poste [at] artquiltmaker [dot] com.

I know this is a hassle. Blame and complain to Google. I appreciate your patience.

Ring Quilts in Progress

At Sew Day, a number of people were working on their Ring quilts from the Latifah Saafir class. It was great to see how different everyone’s interpretation was from the class.

I like the way Maria is using low volume and the rings are kind of floating. I came over and looked at Maria’s top and suggested the green in the upper right hand corner. I think it balances out some of the other green in the quilt.

Gerre was also working on hers and making good progress on her version. She was working on putting the rows together at Sew Day. The green is really great with the orange and the white.

She worked on it again when we had our mini Sew Day and was able to finish it, as I think I said.

I am always excited to see people working on quilts from a class at the same time. It is so fun to see the different interpretations.

Lee Ann's Ring Quilt

I really LOVE Lee Ann’s version of the Put a Ring on it pattern. She nailed my colors.

I really like the way it looks like the rings are radiating out from the center. The rings are not radiating out in gradation order, so my eye moves around quite a bit .

Did you notice the light blue in some of the centers and the turquoise arcs in the corners? Brilliant! There is so much to look at in this quilt.

Did you notice how most of the quilts are the baby size? I made mine that size also.
