Welcome To the Fiesta de Azucar!

… our Sugar Skull Celebration.  I’m excited to bring you the collaborations of 9 designers sponsored by Island Batiks fabrics and Aurifil Threads.  Over the 11 weeks we will bring you our various Sugar Skull designs and the inspiration behind the designs, fabulous fun and prizes and the patterns to create them all.  Patterns will be available for PDF download on Craftsy, Etsy and/or our individual sites.  There will be giveaways and information on our blogs.  The last two weeks will provide two alternate layouts for putting the quilts together.  You can join the Facebook Group by heading over HERE and clicking to JOIN the group or searching on Facebook for: Fiesta de Azucar 2017.

First up this week will be my friend Terri Sontra, Head Moose at Purple Moose Designs.  Terri will kick off the Blog Hop with her Painted Lady Sugar Skull. Head on over to Terri’s blog and let her tell you all about her inspiration for her block and where to find the pattern to make your own.

For those wishing to shop in our online store… don’t be discouraged.  The store currently says “closed for maintenance”… our crew is on a much needed rest.  You never know… we may periodically post some pics… but we will reopen the shop on July 10th for browsing and we will definitely be open in time for downloading our block on the Blog Hop.

Happy Quilting and Enjoy the Fiesta!!!
