Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a two-day festival that takes place every November 1 and 2. Although most strongly identified with Mexico, Dia de los Muertos is celebrated throughout Latin America and everywhere with a Latino population. The most familiar symbol of Dia de los Muertos may be the calacas and calaveras (skeletons and skulls).
I absolutely love all the Dia de los Muertos fabrics offered by Alexander Henry Fabrics and have BOLTS of some of these fabrics so I decided to make a quilt.
This quilt design incorporates Dulce (sweet) Eye Dazzler in persimmon as the backing and in the design along with Carita Calaveras (skull face) in red and black.
