    Going away gift! Mexican Fiesta!

    My friend Cindy has always cooked for our spring fling or Mexican Fiesta. Her husband in Army and now they are moving back to Texas.

    Cindy always made the best home made Mexican food and we will really miss her and her cooking.

    When I saw this Piñata fabric, I knew I would have to make her a quilt. Name:  Mexican_Fiesta01.JPG

    I will be getting quilted with festive design.

    Thanks for looking.

    She also carried a Piñata from Mexico through the airport for my last Party too.

    Cute quilt! I'm sure she'll love it.

    I'm surprised the TSA people didn't bust the pinata open to check it out. I would have avoided the line she was in at security - I suspect there were some long conversations and head scratching. lol
