Every year my quilt guild sells small quilts at our show. The money goes to local organizations that help people in need. This year the owner of Sarah's Fabrics has decided to jump-start the production of these quilts by doing a challenge every couple of months. The first of these challenges was to use one of Terrie Mangat's fabrics. Her work is always so crazy, fun and bright! I signed up immediately. The challenge fabric made me think of exploding pottery, so I just appliqued a bull on it and called it "Bull in a China Shop". Too much is never enough... I decided it needed some sequins too.
Here is my inspiration bull. This is a West Africa flag showing the emblems of several of the military ruling organizations. I bought it for the birds, of course, but I haven't used their shapes in anything yet.
