Did I say I was going to post weekly? I always jinx myself. We are having major internet issues at home, so blogging just hasn't happened.
My cousin requested that I make four 12" crazy blocks using a Dia de los Muertos theme. No time limit (this is a good thing) and she brought her big ol' tub of fabrics to use. Well, the tub sat around in my studio for a few months and I finally got tired of trailing around it, so last week I broke down and made the blocks. I don't know when I will get around to embroidering them, but at least the tub is gone. I do try to straighten up occasionally, but it's pretty much a lost cause because my husband also stores coolers, camping stuff, chairs, and other junk in there. By store I mean the door is opened and things thrown in.
So, here are the blocks:
The fabrics are a lot wilder than what I normally use, so I think I will do the seam work in basic white. I may add a few colors here and there, but the white should be obvious. The tonal patch in the middle of each block will be reserved for a sugar skull motif. One lace, one embroidered, etc. I found some really cute crocheted skulls on etsy that I am thinking about. I can't crochet and do not have the time to learn.
Do not expect to see these finished any time soon, but I will post them as I am done.
