Karen South: statement

I enjoyed making my block for this project. I've been to New Orleans several times over the years and remember the good times from each trip. I tried to stitch some of my memories into this block.

I always think of Café Mundo when ever I think of New Orleans and that is why I added the coffee cup. Next to it is the lamp post that you would see all over town. The music and Mardi Gras mask also reminded me of my trips and then I stated thinking about all the Romance Novels I have read that were based in New Orleans on the old plantations, and added the pearl covered Victorian lady.

This block covers a lot of memories for me of my trips to New Orleans. I hope someday to go back to the "New" New Orleans!
