In Mexico, little wishes are represented by tiny charms called Milagros. The charms are traditionally used for healing purposes and as votive offerings in Mexico. Let the artisans of Chiapas & Oaxaca regions of Mexico be the base of inspiration to you throughout this workshop. Because Mexico is not only margaritas & sandy beaches.
Using Intense Pencil & blocks, appliqué and thread you will create a keepsake that will make you want to shake your maracas! I will walk you through how to create your own designs and lay them out with some stitching and appliqué embellishments and finishing options as well. This is a great technique to enhance your other quilts. There are videos, templates and links so that you can get a clear picture of how I created my small piece.
