Tammy Silvers of Tamarinis has created our second border option for the Fiesta de Azucar quilt project. She has used the Papel Picado vibe we saw in Terry Sontra’s border option last week but has made them into fan shapes that dance with the colorful borders she’s used for each skull. I love the angel hearts, which are symbolic of the enduring love we have for those who have passed on, which is exactly what sugar skulls celebrate!
Tammy is a talented quilt pattern designer and has also designed fabric for Island Batik, one of the sponsors of the Fiesta de Azucar blog hop. She is a quilt teacher and quilt artist whose work has appeared in many industry magazines including Quilt, McCall’s Quilting, American Patchwork and Quilting, Stitch, Fons and Porter’s Love of Quilting, Quilty, Quilt It…Today, Sew It…Today, Stitch and Create and Decorate. She and Terri were the instigators of the Fiesta de Azucar experience, so we can thank them for giving us such a fun opportunity to stitch some very creative sugar skulls!
Thanks so much for “skulling” with us! Please don’t forget to join the Facebook group, share your projects, and celebrate the love of family!
