Chinese New Year
20"w x 48"L
In my neighbourhood Chinese New Year is a noisy, colourful affair with Lion dancing and feasting. 2015 is the Year of the Goat and as my Chinese animal year is also the goat I wanted to celebrate this in my quilt.
I enjoyed hand embroidering the details on the goat's head and creating the look of an old wall in the background. In Chinese culture colours symbolise various things and red is the colour of good fortune, joy and happiness.
