Day of the Dead (Dia de los Meurtos) is celebrated on November 1. Google tells us “Assured that the dead would be insulted by mourning or sadness, the day celebrates the lives of the deceased with food, drink, parties, and activities the dead enjoyed in life.”
I am issuing a Challenge to all you quilters out there: $8 gets you a yard of Day of the Dead Dog fabric.
Make a quilt that is at least 20” square that speaks to the Day of the Dead/Dia De Los Muertos holiday. How do you honor the lives of deceased loved ones? Perhaps you would remember a deceased pet. Quilts are due October 15, 2021. Please be sure to put a hanging sleeve on the back, either sewn on or pinned on with safety pins. The sleeve should be at least 4” wide and one inch shorter than the width of the quilt.
