All Souls Day

I just thought I'd upload a picture of a Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) fabric that I have in my stash. It was put out by Alexander Henry a few years ago. I found it at a quilt show in one yard chunks and bought a couple. (I've also got it with a black background, but that doesn't show up so well on the computer screen.)

When I bought it I had no idea what I was going to use it for, and I still don't. It's one of those fabrics that quilters love to buy but hate to cut into. The skeletons are rather large, so cutting it into small pieces would destroy its charm.

Maybe I could make an apron out of it?

Do a search on "Alexander Henry" and "fiesta de los muertos." Some places are still selling it.
