I got my quilt top finished for Project Quilting's first challenge. The back's all ready too. I just need to quilt them together. Here's the only picture I have of this style of houses though. God forbid that you look like a tourist in your own town ya know. I'm kind-of shocked at how FEW pictures I have of the French Quarter, after living there for years. I guess part of it is that until recently (like 2 years ago) I only had a big bulky camera that I never wanted to carry around with me. Big bulky cameras also attract criminals who target tourists in the quarter, so I just never carried one around when I lived there. (sigh). The only reason I have this one is that it was taken just 6 months after Hurricane Katrina hit, and we were there visiting my parents (who were living in a trailer). We spent a lot of our time on that trip touring the vast destruction.
If you have a good photo I can borrow by tomorrow at noon, send me a line. Otherwise I just hope people can see my inspiration. Oh, and wish me luck!!
