Time for another Saturday of joining in for some Rainbow Scrap Challenge fun!
Lots of vintage scraps were used to create this house. I'm pretty sure the small print in the body of the house is well over 20 years old. The bandana print is from a black and red quilt I made for my oldest son about 15 years ago - he's got it at his apartment or I would've snapped a picture to share. The best memories come from the little girl in the window, though. She's from a quilt I made for my youngest son's kindergarten teacher. I helped all the kids in the class transfer their handprints to fabric squares, which I assembled using this wonderful red, white and blue print of children. Great memories of my boys' school days!
Some leader-ender spools in red were added to the collection.
This week's New Orleans house is a townhouse in Faubourg Marigny. The neighborhood is located on a former plantation on the downriver side of the French Quarter. An interesting detail about this house is the memorialized X-code to the left of the door (click on the picture to enlarge it). The X-code was used by search and rescue teams after Hurricane Katrina to denote when the building was searched, by what rescue team and what was found during the search. Most X-code markings have been painted over by now, but some people choose to save the marking as a memorial.
