Here is the front as it stands now. I have ordered more fabric as I ran out of the cinnamon and several other colors are almost gone.
Originally, I was going to piece the back, but I kept thinking about the quilting, and wondering if it wouldn't be better to have a solid back.
This was going to be the back, but may be another quilt.
I love working downtown. Shreveport is a small city, but it does have a nice downtown. What is so different about working in the heart of the city and working in one of the many office complexes that have moved further and further out? The atmosphere seems more like an adventure, and I love the feeling of the wind moving down the channels of the streets like a river bordered by huge forests on each side. I love having places to walk to, different possible destinations. I can walk to a restaurant, the post office, various stores, Art Space, the Multicultural Center, the YWCA.... There are interesting things to examine --the murals, the old advertisement signs painted on buildings, the complicated details on older buildings.
Across the street and down some from the Beck Building, scenes were being shot in a parking garage for Kevin Costner's new movie. Rumors are that he is a quite a gentleman. Rumors are less kind to his co-star, Ashton Kutcher. This is Mr. Costner's second movie to be shot in Shreveport, and traffic often has to be redirected as they shoot various scenes. That is pretty much all of my knowledge on the movie business, but it was interesting to see the cameras as I walked to work.
