Delightfully Macabre


My latest weekend passion is researching fabric designs either online (today) or at my local JoAnn Fabric store. Blame the fascination on my attempt to combine quilting with my love of design.

I was struck by this fabric called ‘vida de los muertos’ by Alexander Henry and had a hard time picturing how one would use it. Thankfully, the folks at J & O Fabrics had suggestions for this “delightfully macabre imagining of the daily routine of skeletons.” How about Hawaiian shirts, bags, crafts or an outfit for Rover? And then, I found a link to the bib pictured here.

Maybe one day you will see fabric by yours truly.

Neat. I'd love a Dia de los Muertos quilt to cover up with. :)

Sheila, you are extremely gifted in your handsewn quilts, etc. I want a quilt in this fabric, lol, can you manage that for me? Thank you.

Just kidding, but I do love the fabric.
