    Glad you are better. These are totally not my colors. I can see it in different colors.

    Thank You Jan. I am a newbie when it comes to bright colors but this looks like something I would like to do. Nice picture to draw the colors from.
    Glad you are feeling better.

    Jan, I was not on for sometime and am very glad you are recovering. Wasn't aware of your surgery! I too am so glad you are back. I always am very interested in your comments and have learned so much from your quilting wisdom. Thank you!!!

    Just goes to show that you can't keep a good woman down, or even slow her for very long. Thank you so much for your project. That photo is incredible.

    Thank you for the block. So very glad to hear you are on your way to recovery. Very happy that all those prayers sent your way did wonders. Always read your posts especially when you post the pictures of certain blocks and how they are broken down into sections. Stay well

    Thank you Jan.. I am so glad you're feeling better and are able to get on the computer.. I know shoulder surgery is not fun, with a lot of physical therapy involved.. My sweet MIL had it but just didn't want to do the therapy.. That was not a good idea as it turned out. So painful or not, just do it. Then come back to that beautiful quilt you've planned.. I'm off to look in my stash and see what bright colors I have. Thank you again!

    Thank you, Jan. I have been pondering over a yellow quilt for a week or so, and if I can figure out how to get your pattern printed, I'll be using it for a quilt for my GGD's birthday, coming up soon. I'm going out to my sewing room right now, quitting the forum until tonight, and find all the fabric to get started.
    Make every day count for something!

    Thank you, Jan! It makes me smile just to see those colors and the block design shows them up beautifully. It's also neat to see how you were able to use an attractive picture as inspiration.

    That will be just perfect to make little quilts to send out for babies in Africa.I belong to a craft group and they are all knitting little sweaters for so called 'salt and vinegar' babies. These are newborns who are taken home wrapped in paper because the mothers cannot afford baby clothes. I really can't knit so I thought maybe little quilts to wrap them in. I really don't work with vibrant colours but I will buy some for this project, the colours of their country.( Salt and vinegar) because here in the U.K. before 'health and safety' took over, that was how fish and chips were taken home, wrapped in newsprint! Oh dear showing my age --- still a much more carefree time I think. Love Letty x

    It's a beautiful block, great design. Hope you continue to mend after your surgery. I know it can be tough, I'm just beginning to quilt again after having a badly torn rotator cuff repaired, not fun, but I'm so much better. Hope you continue to feel better and better. Take care of yourself.

    So glad to hear from you and know that you are doing better.

    Your quilt idea is wonderful! The colors are outside my usual, especially the orange, but you inspire me to try it!

    Jan, I can't play along until I get my computer back and the Geek Squad helps me figure out how to post pictures. But, I wanted to let you know I love the color way even though it is out of my comfort zone. I also love the photo, the women are so colorful, they look happy with their big bowls of fruit. Is it a historical photo or one from recent years. It would be interesting to know where women dress like this.
