Quilt Patterns Pro and Wordpress PSA

I was notified by Missy that my blog content was hijacked. I then went to check it out and did a search and sure enough, there was quite a bit of my blog posts on there. The way these blogs can steal your content is by a robot that goes and captures your blog posts to place on their blog for money. Each click anyone makes on this blog (Quilt Patterns Pro) makes them money. This is the reason why I truncate all of my posts so it can only grab the wordings before being truncated. I noticed that I did miss a couple and have gone back to fix it.

I think the only way we can all stop this site from illegally stealing content is by contenting GoDaddy (www.godaddy.com) and Wordpress. The platform that is used is from Wordpress. I firmly wrote a letter to GoDaddy and then I went onto Wordpress' Facebook page and put in a long comment regarding the situation.

What A Mess...

It was a mess alright. I did not finish my AYOLF or FAL goals for March because of this mess of a quilt. For the first time ever in all my years of quilting, I am getting rid of this quilt and not finishing it. I thought it was such a great deal to buy the flannels at Joann's because it was such a great sale. I had already had massive shrinkage problems with the other quilt I made and these were left over from all the fabrics I had to buy to finish the star quilt. This one was a wonky when I was trying to quilt it and it got even worse as I got to the end.

Clutch Giveaway Winner and Craftsy

Happy Monday!!! It's been so long since I was able to sew or do much. I am happy to say that things are going back to normal this week and hope to finish quilting my flannel chevron quilt I had basted at the beginning of the month. On that note, I have decided to re-open my pattern shop and have gone with Craftsy for that.
