    Day of the Dead OBW

    My DD just finished this lap size quilt for her son and his wife as a house warming present. They requested a Day of the Dead themed fabric. It is another team project as I did sew on the binding, helped her with the design and provided the quilting machine. I think it turned out very nicely.

    Nicely done and great use of the DOD print. The quilt looks more alive than dead though.
