Once more, we realize that in Mexico we have a lot of inspiration to draw from, which is why the topic of this contest shows how diverse, colorful, cheerful and magic Mexico is.
For this collection, quilters had to reach out to the traditional craftspeople, research about the persons, their environment, their motivations and the way they work. They have dug deep and discovered that, in life, everything has a reason, there are no coincidences in the tracing of the ancestral heritage of the different peoples of Mexico.
By recovering these values, quilters have included their own particular vision regarding the issue each of them selected, resulting in a magical symbiosis between past and present, tradition and modernity, memories and proposals for the future. Enjoy this tour through the textiles of Mexico!
This 100% original and unique collection in the world was displayed at the 10th Expo Patchwork & Quilt Mexico City 2018, the 2018 Patchwork Festival in León, Guanajuato, the Southern New Mexico Festival of Quilts in Alamogordo, United States (2018), the Quilt Festival in Bern, Switzerland (2018) and the Carrefour Européen du Patchwork in Sainte-Marie-aux-Mines, France (2018).
