Dia de los Muertos Birthday

Happy Birthday to our daughter, Sarah!

Today is All Souls Day, a day when we remember those who have gone before us.

Last week, Kevin and I went to the pioneer cemetery in town for a photo shoot of Sarah’s birthday quilt with Dia de los Muertos fabric.  The quilt pattern can be found here.

Quilt by tree

I was super lucky to find a back that I was pretty sure would match at Joann’s for $3/yard.  It’s a Denyse Schmidt fabric and yes, it did match.Back of Quilt

I’m pretty sure this is where the quit took on a really nasty stain on the back.  It did come out with scrubbing and a washing.
