The Quilt Show Puzzle: "Freedom Fireworks" by Terrie Hancock Mangat

Do a puzzle of Terrie Hancock Mangat's quilt, Freedom Fireworks.


Freedom Fireworks is part of a series of fireworks quilts that Terrie has made over the years. In Cincinnati, they would bring the barges up the river every year and shoot off fireworks from them orchestrated to music. Each year Terrie would go and listen to the music, watch the fireworks, and then memorize how the sky would look, loving the marks of the smoke on the sky and the appearance of the light up above. These annual trips inspired her fireworks series of quilts. Freedom Fireworks was made using cowrie shells, mirror cloth from India, fabric from Africa, decoupaged pieces with pipe cleaners coming out of them, and more.
