Continuing Issues on MyQuiltPlace

Good Morning.

Our network provider says the site should be working properly. I'm not convinced yet and need your help. If you can see this blog post, or the comment I posted, please respond. You can either "like" or leave a comment. This will help me judge how well the site is working.

One thing I need everyone to do: clear your cache and browsing history. This will clean up any old links. Once you do this, we will have a better idea of how well the site is operating.

Good Morning,

I have, once again, been in contact with the network provider. Here is their reply:

Hi there!

Apologies for any inconveniences!

This issue has been added to a sprint of our Developers. Sprint is estimated to be about 10 days. So within this period a bug should be fixed.…

Good Morning. In case you haven't noticed, the activity feed is not showing up correctly and not updating the way it is supposed to. Since the blog posts seem to be updating fairly well, I'm using this to try to contact everyone.

I have tried to change some settings to get the site working properly again, but that did not work. I have sent in a request for help from the network provider. I am waiting for a reply and a remedy for our problem.

Please be patient and know that we…

hi! one of the members here @ mqp, carla walton, has made an incredible quilt that recently won a blue ribbon in the abilene tx quilt show. a couple of us in the gardening group would like to change the photo avatar there to a photo of carlas quilt. we think a quilt depicting the seasons harvest would be a nice avatar. here is link to her album page showing her quilt and her permission to use it.*HHQV1XMfPG54M/SAM_08173.JPG__that second link is the full view page of the photo we want to use.__thanks. not sure this is the proper proceedure for what we are asking. if not please let us know how to ho about changing the gardenining group avatar. again, thanks

I shy away from "baby"quilts as they become toddlers too quickly- so I do basically a two sided quilt. One side has the child's name in large paper pieced blocks, and a pocket for a toy or a book in matching fabric. I keep the background simple, like a white with, multi colored dots. The other side  could be any simple pattern- the last one I did was big half square triangles with the bias pattern stripe coming together and arranged in rows with the same background as the front. Binding was the striped fabric of the pieced letters and the triangles.

Just a thought, it would be nice if we could sort the "Quilter's Page" by location so we can find quilters in our area without having to go through 100+ pages. :)

THank you so much for the birthday wishes.  It's been a great birthday - one of the best things is that I got an old 1930's White running like new (took me sooo long to figure out that the needle goes in sidewise, and the wheel turns BACKWARDS) but it runs better than my newer machines.

AQS has always had a fine appreciation for red and white quilts. When I have offered related workshops and lectures, they have always been successful. Redwork is beautiful, affordable, and easily created.
