Work in Progress: Mariachi Embroidery Panel for Day of the Dead Quilt

Another weekend down, and the mariachi papel picado embroidery panel is done!  I took a pic even though the panel is damp (I soaked it to get rid of the tracing lines).Onward and onward.

Work in Progress: Embroidery Panels for a Quilt

It took me all weekend and part of a Monday to finish the bride and groom, but I finally completed it and then got started on the mariachi band.  While embroidering these Day of the Dead panels,  I remembered the Cotton + Steel fat quarters from their Boo!collection that I bought and poring through Susan Beal's Modern Log Cabin Quilting: 25 Simple Quilts and Patchwork Projects last summer.  Eureka!  My embroidery will be the center panel of a bunch of log cabins.
