NEW PROJECT FABRIC SELECTION

My step daughter Janet in Idaho, wants a Day of the Dead quilt.  This may not be familiar with some of you and not everyone's cup of tea.  I will tell you it will fit into Janet's house beautifully.  Day of the Dead is most popular in Mexico and a time for celebrating and honoring the dead;  not meant to be morbid.   It is already cut and partially pieced.  I should have more on this tomorrow.

Quilt happy,

Marilyn

I like your fabric choices. The fact that it's a day of the dead quilt is not the first thing that occurs to me when I look at it. The colors seem not typical, but then you get a little surprise upon closer inspection. I like that.
