Before we jump into the kit, let’s chat about the ‘Day of the Dead.’ You’ve probably seen those colorful skulls and thought, “That’s some cool art!” But let me tell ya, there’s so much more to the ‘Day of the Dead’ than just pretty designs. Buckle up, ’cause we’re going on a cultural rollercoaster!
It’s time for Quilt Block Mania again for August 2020. This month’s theme is Back To School and there are many absolutely fabulous blocks to download for your fun piecing delight.

Today, my project is along the lines of Christmas once again. If you remember last month I said it was going to be my goal to create something for everyone this year for Christmas and I’m still working on that goal, so here is my project…
