Save the Last Dance for Me


In a design workshop with Sharon Schamber, I became frustrated.  We were designing quilts with a medallion or mandala setting. Everyone else was drawing pretty flowers.  The more I drew, the less I liked it.  Sharon walked past my table and noted my confusion.  She said, "Nancy, do what you do.  Do what YOU do" and then she walked away.  I thought DOES SHE MEAN SKELETONS? This quilt resulted from my drawing in that class.  It's the 11th in my series of Dia de los Muertos quilts.
