    While waiting for the fabric to come in to finish my Warm Wishes quilt I have started another quilt that I have been wanting to do for some time. It is very simply but is gonna be all about Louisiana. This is just the first row, but was wanting opinions before going any further. Each row will be 5 blocks across alternating with the green and gold border and then a black sash.

    Can't wait to see if you find crawdad fabric! You could make your own with a wooden stamp. Your idea gives me inspiration.

    I spent a year in Minot North Dakota many years back, a southern girl's first time to see snow. :shock: :shock:
    LOVE the summers there, the winters-----well not so much. :-(

    I'd say that's a wonderful start and you definitely should continue.

    Ok I wanted to go back into this post to edit topic but I do not see anywhere to be able to do that like I used to. Anyway I worked all day on the blocks, made one minor adjustment of 4 across instead of 5 and made it 6 down. All I need to do is add the sashing and border it.

    Don't forget to incorporate some purple in it too to make it the three colors that say Louisiana! Very pretty so far. Make sure to post the finished quilt.
