    I did finish the Emerald Wave chevron quilt.  Been trying to use up my  
left overs here and there.  I have three dog/cat mats started and waiting t
o get some thin batting for centers.  I had extra blocks from the Chevron a
nd took them apart and made hots pads which still need the binding to sew b
y hand in the back of pads.  Made a baby crib quilt with more left overs. D
id have to buy a couple fabrics 1/2 yds. each, one has baby turtles. Going  
to give all these items to the Senior Centers craft show which is in Nov.
  
    Working on the Half Square Quilt from Missouri Star Quilt Co.  You can  
see the tutorial by going there. My quilt has pink prints of 2 1/2 in strip
s sewn together(remember after the first two strips are sewn together, then
 reverse each strip by sewing on the other end from where you started.  Cut
 the background fabric into a block and then cut the sewn strips into the s
ame size block; now sew around all 4 sides of the two blocks with fronts fa
cing each other, then cut horizontally both ways.  You get two different bl
ocks. Start sewing the blocks together.  I started with block 1, then 2 to  
make it as wide as you want. The 2nd row I reversed the order by sewing #2  
first, then 1, then just continue this method until the quilt is as long as
 you need.

Sound like you enjoyed sewing all these things!  I have started a few small  
projects, but mostly taking up some of my clothes sine I lost a few lbs.

Hello Barbara inc SC,
    I get tired of just doing quilting, so like to try other things and I envy you on the weight loss. I seem to stay about the same. I should learn to push myself away from the table.
