mexican embroideryMexican markets are filled with beautiful embroidery. Some of it is handmade and exquisite. Some of it is inexpensive and rougher – I don’t know if it is machine or hand made. I love it all. The exuberant patterns and colors fill me with joy. These first two images are the fronts of dresses that I bought at a stand in Tulum.

  2. Just happened to see this post. I love the Mexican embroidery! Here’s a link to a post of mine, showing the medallion quilt I made using a portion of a dress. It’s one of my very favorite quilts for a number of reasons. http://catbirdquilts.wordpress.com/2014/01/09/round-robin-with-my-sister/

    • What a great project to do with your sister! I like how even though you have different voices they are united in the quilts.
