Mixed Media Monday’s challenge for the week is “Mardi Gras.” I decided to focus on Mardi Gras’ traditional color scheme: purple, green and gold. I’m working through a new book, “Fabric Embellishments: the basics and beyond.” One of the workshops is traditional crazy quilting, and I decided the Mardi Gras colors would be perfect for a crazy quilt patch. I added a number of embroidery stitched motifs, including a crown, and added a fleur de lis and several star charms.

So here is a crazy Mardi Gras celebration. Enjoy!
