The Quilt Show Puzzle: A Goat with a Beautiful Name

"Bella" by Mary Pal

Bella was made for an exhibition in Taiwan where Mary was placed under a Capricorn grouping, where everyone ended up making something to do with goats. She says, "The symbol of the astrological sign Capricorn is the goat. This artwork is adapted from a photo by Kevin Horan, whose camera captured the whimsical, almost human expression of this inquisitive goat." And, after seeing the photo, Mary knew she just had to reproduce it in her signature medium of cheesecloth.
