The first time I saw this pattern, I saw piñatas in the negative space. We love all things Tex-Mex down here in San Antonio, and when I look at this quilt, I feel the need to drink a margarita, do a Mexican hat dance, and bust a pinata. In that order, mind you.
Truth be told, this wasn’t a quilt I wanted to make. I was sort of pushed into it by a friend. And thank goodness for her because this was seriously the most fun I have ever had making a quilt. I worked on it at two weekend quilting retreats because I just had to make one more block. 16 times.
And now the quilt is living with my friend Keri. I miss the quilt so much that I might need to file for visitation. This is the quilt I wish I had in my collection. The one I was saddest to let go (yet thrilled it was going to someone who loves it like I do). My favorite from the last 21 years of quiltmaking.
Pattern is in Material Obsession 2.
