Play day with leftover fabric pieces

It's a left over Thanksgiving food kind of weekend. So it's a perfect time to use up some already cut fabric pieces left over from a Hunter Start quilt I'm making. I never toss these little bits because you never know what you can make with them. I decided to jump in and just start sewing! Here's the mini quilt results.

 Now time to quilt it! I love long weekends!!!!

Day of the Dead Sugar Skulls Art Quilts

Dia de los Muertos/Day of the Dead Sugar Skull Art Quilts

I love the bright colors and folk art and floral aspects of sugar skulls. That inspired me to make a series of art quilts with lots of embellishments. This is the first sugar skull art quilt I completed in my series.

This is the second sugar skull art quilt in the series. They are made from cotton fabrics, hand embroidery, beads, floss, rick rack, and white fabric paints.

This one is in progress and still needs more embellishments and beads.
 These have been great traveling with these and being able to add to it as it strikes me!
