Inspiration: The love and joy of family
This quilt represents all the love and joy of family as we celebrated my daughters wedding this past weekend. My daughter got married to a wonderful young man in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. The red glitter organza represents the country of Mexico. There are 2 crystals, one is where I live, Monterrey, Mexico. The second crystal represents Cabo San Lucas, Baja California, where my daughter got married. The figure is a mariachi musician playing beautiful music. The back ground fabric is typical Mexican woven fabric.
Materials and techniques: Glitter organza, commercial cotton and woven textile. cotton batting, polyester thread, raw appliqué and free motion quilting.
