Fiesta de Azucar – Border Option #2, Marigolds & Bones

Friday, September 1st, 2017

So, has everyone enjoyed all the blocks so far? Nine different blocks by nine awesome designers! In case you missed any of them check out the links below. You can also search Craftsy for Fiesta de Azucar and you can find them all. Now it’s time for a border…don’t ya think?

 

I remember getting ready for Dia de Los Muertos celebrations as a kid and one of my favorite parts was making the Papel Picado. That’s the tissue paper flags. You make them by folding and cutting – similar to the snowflakes we all made as kids. They can be quite intricate but I opted for a simpler and more “homey” look to my flags. I also wanted to include marigolds (the traditional flower) and some skeleton parts. So, that’s what my border design is all about. Marigolds & Bones.

 

The instructions are for a full accompaniment of the nine blocks. You can easily pick and choose the different elements to make a table runner with just a couple of skulls or a small wall hanging with a single skull. So without further ado…here is the quilt…

I hope you enjoy the border. I can’t wait to see what you do with your creations! There will be one more border option next week then you have until 10/30/17 to post pictures of your project for a chance at our fabulous prizes!
