They said STOP

Just after I posted Friday’s block (safety cones), I received an e-mail from Blogger which said:

“Hello, Your blog has been identified as a potential spam blog. To correct this, please request a review by filling out the form at http://www.blogger.com/unlock-blog. Your blog will be deleted in 20 days if it isn't reviewed, and your readers will see a warning page during this time. After we receive your request, we'll review your blog and unlock it within two business days. Once we have reviewed and determined your blog is not spam, the blog will be unlocked and the message in your Blogger dashboard will no longer be displayed. We find spam by using an automated classifier. Automatic spam detection is inherently fuzzy, and occasionally a blog like yours is flagged incorrectly. We sincerely apologize for this error.”

Sure enough, my blog was blocked for posting. I filled out the “unlock form” and figured I’d have to wait at least two days to post again. But, surprise, I found I was able to post this afternoon.

Because I’d been told to STOP, I decided to make a quilt block called “Stop and smell the roses.” Here it is:
If you would like to paper piece a 4-inch stop sign block, you can click on the small image below and print out a foundation to use. Your block could be called “Stop and smell the flowers” if you have flowery fabric, or perhaps you have some bacon fabric and can make a “Stop and smell the bacon” block.
