    Thanks all, ... it really is my first attempt --- found out that I really LIKE PP. Not bad for an old man that started quilting about 10 months ago, huh??

    I love it! I love the colors against the black background. I printed off a few patterns to try and your beautiful block is an inspiration.

    That is absolutely beautiful. I love the effect of using the black and white fabric. It almost looks like smoke. Great job.
