I mentioned the sugar skull project, or Fiesta de Azucar, in another post. Nine of us quilt designers will do a cooperative quilt celebrating Fiesta de Azucar–Dias de Los Muertos. We now have fabric! Island Batik has provided us with some beautiful, deep jewel colors to use in creating our sugar skulls, and Aurlfil has provided the same bright colors of thread. Time to start sewing! Here is a look at the evolution of my sugar skull design. My skull is based on sugar candy. Other designers will be creating skulls using veggies, butterflies, and sewing implements. How would you design your own sugar skull? Do you have special memories of a loved one that would influence your decision?
