    Really like this block and think it will work for something I'm working on--donations for a Relay for Life benefit. I think I'be figured out the measurement of the cut size for center background of the outer star but thought I'd check with you before I cut. Should those pieces be cut 3 X 3.5 or are they cut 3 X 3. To get square it seems like they should be 3 inch squares but marked to finish 2.5 X 3.
    Thankful to still be here.Someone upstairs must still have a plan for me.

    SMR,
    The parts of the block you are referring to are NOT square, they are actually slightly rectangular! So, yes, they are to be cut at 3.5" x 3".....can't *believe* I missed that measurement on the right side of the graphic!!!!

    (Of course, with that said, you could absolutely cut them at 3.5" square. It will make a larger block that has more "float" for the points of the main star. I didn't care for this amount of background fabric in the block so that's why I "trimmed" around the block to create the rectangular star point sections.)

    THANK YOU for asking the question!! As I am not yet cutting fabric and sewing, I did not test drive this block before submitting it to you all. #colormeembarrassed#

    It's a lovely block. When I finish my current quilt I'm going to be making an African themed one from the Celebrating African Women range. This will be an excellent block to use in it. Thank you. I hope you are well soon.

    YEA! I love it. Thank you so much. I actually have a quilt made from your directions for a previous project. There was a young girl here who wanted to make a quilt from a barn block for her wedding. You gave the dimensions etc. here for her. I made a stunning quilt from your easy to follow directions. I can't wait to give it a go from this one. Thanks again!

    Thank you Jan for such a great inspiration! I love the idea of using a picture you love for the color of a block. And the block you posted is great. I'm not sure how soon I will get to it but I am going to make it.

    Thanx Jan, the color ways possible with that picture are amazing. Just the color alone makes you want to smile and get on with it. Great inspiration

    Jan, Keep taking care of yourself and the healing fairy will grace you and we won't have to make this quilt for you.

    Really, Thanks for showing this picture and creating the block color placement. I am anxious to see what people come up with. What a bright show it will be.

    This is going to be fun.

    I love the picture and the bright colors the women wear. The fruit looks so refreshing in this hot picture.

    Since my plate is already overflowing I might as well pile this on top. It will be like the cherry atop an Ice cream float!
    I'll get started right away.

    Take care!
    peace

    Okay I made this block, now let me say that this is WAY OUT of my comfort zone in a couple of ways. First would be the color. Now Jan don't take this personally but I don't like the color orange. I only have about 7 in my stash. Second its has a modern feel to it. I don't normally make modern. But I thought it was so nice of Jan to take the time to share and I really like the picture of the ladies. So I'm making this quilt. Not sure that I'll stay with the fabrics I used, but it was all I had on hand. Most of my stash is brights. I think this pattern would be better with batiks or muted colors. All in all I had fun putting it together. Another thought I had was if it were made scrappy. Thanks so much Jan for inspiring me to work with orange! So glad you didn't add purple to the mix!....LOL! Although I do have more purple than orange!
