This is not exactly my design wall.  The quilt I am working on is for the Des Moines show so am keeping it under wraps for awhile.  I thought I would show you the fabric that I am going to use for the  "Going to Market" quilt.  See the right column for information about the quilt.  I found two different lines of fabric plus I added one or two pieces and have come up with this.  I think it will be jazzy.  The plans are to start the quilt March 1st. 

My cat scratch fever looks much better and I am on the mend.  My kitty looks at me with guilty looks. 

We have a gorgeous day in southwest Louisiana.  It is super.........I wish it would be like this year round.  But, if it was like this we would be like California, very much over populated and that would not be good.  According to the 2010 census we have not grown very much and I can honestly say, I am glad.  I think, if my memory serves me well, Lake Charles grew by 236 people in ten years.  Actually, when I lived here in 1974 the population was about 70,000, today it is about 71000.  I can handle that.  When I lived in San Diego county we had 3 million in the county.  It is so nice to be able to drive to a distination within a reasonable period of time. 

Hope all is well....................
