    I want to thank all of you that responded to me wanting to trade squares for squares. There was a big response and I maybe able to complete my weight loss quilt with out needing anymore fabric to do it. I have to make 29 blocks now and then 1 for every pound I lose in the future. I am shooting for 100 pounds to be loss so I may make more than 1 quilt. Wouldn't that be nice.

    Thank you and HUGS to all of you that helped me out!!!!
    Carrie

    Hi Carrie, Don't dwindle down to nothing, 100 lbs sure seems like alot to be losing. And if you send me you addy. I would be happy to help out with your project.

    Carrie,
    I hear ya girl! I have to loose 103 but some day I will get there. Once I have my surgery I think it (or at least I am hoping ) it will be easier for me to exercise.
    You can do it and congrats on all you have lost so far!
    Hugs

    I must have missed your posts for squares, but if you need more just pm me and I'd be happy to get some to you. As for your weight, good luck, and we'll be anxious to hear how you are doing. It's a never ending battle.

    Mine went in the mail yesterday Carrie. Hope you like it but it is sort of dull compared to what else is out there.

    Carrie, I missed your original post(must have been a Senior Moment), but I have several notions fabrics that I can send your squares for your quilt. Just pm me if you still need more. I'd love to send you some and NO fabric in return. Congrats on your goal! You have more willpower than me!!

    Thank you but I think I am gonna have enough. Well I don't think a 100 yet but it will be a while before I reach that 100lb. mark. It took 6 months to lose the 29 lost already. I average about 2 to 5 lbs. a month and I only make a block as I lose a lb.
