Day of the Dead quilt

This quilt was made by Lorna for her daughter, who loved the fabric.

Lorna’s daughter felt there wasn’t quite enough of the Day of the Dead fabric in it, so I found a Sugar Scull pantograph called Fiesta by Sandrah Burrier to help fill in the complementary fabrics and background with Sugar Skulls.

Día de los Muertos, also known as the Day of the Dead, is a holiday when people remember those who have died. Largely celebrated in Mexico, it dates back to pre-Hispanic civilizations from 2,500 to 3,000 years ago.

My husband fell in love with this quilt and I have been looking for Fiesta, Sugar Skull or Day of the Dead fabric ever since (no luck yet).
