This is a small quilt that I made to celebrate the "Day of the Dead". While it is not for everyone, I love the idea of celebrating the Day of the Dead. Many of the dearest people in my life have "passed over" and I think a day to celebrate them with flowers, food and music is terrific.
I titled it "I See Dead People - Ode' to Frida Khalo"
I used variegated thread and did a liberated cross-hatch (very liberated)
The back shows a larger piece of the fabric I used.
Here are some miniature pieces of art that I have collected. This is a rock band that I found for my son.
My favorite Mexican artists, Diego Rivera and Frida Khalo
I love this one, it's a banquet with Frida's portrait on the back - so cool!

This photo will give you a better idea of the small scale of these pieces.
Here is a piece of "sugar head' mexican candy fabric that I love. It's hard to see but there is a lot of colorful sparkly parts on it. I think it would be a great backing from something someday.
Here in NJ the school kids have a few days off, so my daughter and I are off to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter for a few days.
Have a great week and remember to Celebrate today!
