For Life

4 Life ~ Detail
For Life ~ 2009 ~ Portrait of My Parents on Their Wedding Day
4 Life ~ Detail

The challenge was to create a theme quilt for Day of the Dead.  I choose the Day of the Dead fabric as my inspiration fabric.  The quilt is machine pieced and quilted. Raw applique was used to add the sun, heart, bird and dragonflys.  I reprinted a photo of my parents on their wedding day.  I wanted their photo to be the vocal point of the quilt, so I printed it in black and white instead of color.  The red flowers were made using yoyos and then added to the quilt.  The yellow flowers are three dimensional and heavily beaded in the center.
