Well, I finally finished my hexagon quilt based on artist Frida Kahlo (born July 6, 1907 -died July 13, 1954 in Coyoacan, Mexico), fabric by Alexander Henry. I think I like it. I can’t stop looking at it. I used the original fabric on the left side only. I love the 2002 movie based on Frida’s life. Frida was played by Selma Hayek.
Printed on the fabric are two quotes made by Frida Kahlo & printed on the fabric in spanish. I machine embroidered them on the borders in english. On the top border, embroidered is “Feet, what do I need them for when I have wings to fly”. She survived a terrible bus accident where she was impaled by a steel post, but was in pain most of her life.
In the top right corner I added a skull with a butterfly super imposed over it. (Design by http://www.urbanthreads.com)
