    A GIFT for you for your encouragement this month!

    This board has been uplifting and encouraging this month following my surgery that I wanted to give you all a gift! Over the last couple of days I have drawn out this block and an idea for a quilt. I was inspired by the happy and energetic colors in a picture I have long saved, hoping to some day make a quilt using this blue/yellow/orange/red colorway.

    Instead I hope YOU will make this block or a quilt in these bright colors -- even if it's "outside your comfort zone"!! And then share her with all of us.

    The next post will be the block.

    Here is the block for you.
    I think it is fairly self explanatory but if you have problems PM me or post here, as someone else may have the same question.

    Thank you, friends!
