Quilt Me a Story (Socorro Carlos)

This is another first quilt. Socorro Carlos shares her story of immigration from Mexico to Chicago when she was around 2 year old. It was a windy September day when they stepped of the airplane to their new home. The argument is whether she or her sister were wearing the red coat. However, it is her most vivid memory. I love how she has roots coming out of her grandmother's house to remind everyone of her roots are Mexican. She did lots of embellishing which is also near and dear to my heart. She has gold button earrings, lace on her socks, tight braids because that is how her mother did their hair and she holds a medal of the Infant of Prague who has always watched over her.

Another amazing quilt will be added tomorrow.
