Fotini M. (MX): El Día de los Muertos

Name of the Block: El Día de los Muertos

Name of the Quilter: Fotini M.

Country: Mexico

I decided to make something Mexican for "Where do you come from". I am Greek, but have lived in Mexico for some time and I really like this tradition.

On November 2nd, which is the Día de los Muertos, there is a big festival and people lay out the food which their dead ancestors liked. They make sweets in the shape of skulls and embellish them heavily. Each skull is named after a dead loved one. The women disguise themselves as Catrina, an elegant woman, but who is also dead.

And this is my block contribution for "Where do you come from?":
