QFAH block

Here is my first block for the QFAH with I put one together just to see what it would look like. I have a lot to do, they need to be pressed, squared

Monday Health and Fitness report

Well, I am kind of proud of myself. I managed to fit in 2 days of bike riding. I know I said I would bike ride 3 days a week for 30 minutes but I couldn't find time for a 3rd workout. ;( but I did 2 days so I am happy. The first day I rode I couldn't believe how out of shape I am. I rode around the block then had to stop and rest and start again. I didn't think I would make 30 minutes. This week I will JUST DO IT. I will ride 3 days for 30 excuses! Oh yeah...I lost 1 pound.

QFAH hour 1 & 2

Here are my half square triangles. I started mine tonight and so far I have made 40. Only 80 more to go. I am kind of worried about the background colors I picked out. Since his favorite colors are black and red, I tried to pick something different than leaves and flowers. I am hoping that there is enough contrast in the two colors.

I joined the crafty, creative and fit group on and I have not made a commitment to exercise yet. I have been on a low carb diet and lost 6 lbs in 1 month but I gained back 2 lbs within the last 2 weeks. So I have decided to make a commitment to start bike riding for 30 minutes 3 times a week. I am really good at making excuses for not exercising but this time I will not put it off or make excuses! I will JUST DO IT!! as the Nike ad says. LOL I really need to make a change in my lifestyle. I had a physical today and my blood pressure was kind of high...140 over 94. SO I will just do it when I get home from work!

Judy L.QFAH starts Oct. 6

Today I went to the store and bought the fabric I am going to use for my QFAH quilt that Judy L designed. Her website is It is a beautiful quilt. I am going to make it for my 20 year old son for his Christmas present. His favorite colors are black and red. He does not anything girly like flowers and stuff like that. The red is a little different but with the black running thru it. I thought that would blend it all together. Anyways I really like the fabric I chose! I hope he does too. I think it will turn out great!
