Last year I invited the chairman of the Louisiana Northshore Quilt Trail to visit my Livingston Parish Quilt Guild. We were asked by the Denham Springs Main Street Association to create two blocks for the city.  My guild designed one based on an original ceiling tile from the Historical Old City Hall.  We used the traditional courthouse step pattern on the outside.  It was painted by local artist Paulette Ferguson and Denham Springs High School art instructor Virginia Berthelot.  It was dedicated on July 16, 2013 with a reception by the Denham  Springs Main Street Association.  Here is a photo of the Historical Old City Hall block.



We invited the students of Denham Springs High School art instructor Virginia Berthelot to design a block for Train Station Park.  The Denham Springs Main Street Association chose a design by Bryce Richard.  He painted the block and it was dedicated on July 16, 2013.  Pictured are Louisiana Northshore Quilt Trail chairman Kim Zabbia, treasurer Cricket Ayala, board member Mary Felder,  painter and designer Bryce Richard,  vice chairman Rosemary Ydarraga and secretary Margaret Bailey.




The Livingston Parish Convention and Visitors Bureau in Albany, Louisiana held a contest for a design for their business.  My design won.  A local artist, Marita Gentry painted it.  It was also dedicated on July 16, 2013.
