A Little Taste of Mexico

A few years ago, one of my dearest friends travelled extensively through Mexico.  During one of her stops, she came across a collection of these beautiful pieces of hand embroidered art.  She brought them home with her and then generously gave me half of her collection to make a quilt with.  I spent a lot of time making this quilt because I wanted it to be just right.  Each fabric had to audition and I made more changes than I have ever made in a quilt just so that it would all be perfect.

I hope you enjoy looking at this one :)

  3. Your fabric shows off the embroidery perfectly! I visit Santa Fe often, and this type of embroidery and coloration is seen all over the city. Even the painted windows at La Fonda Hotel look like this!
