Why did Aunt Jennifer choose to embroider tigers on the panel?

Answer

Aunt Jennifer chose to embroider tigers on the panel as an expression of her suppressed emotions. The free, independent, enthusiastic tigers prancing around freely without fear have been as a symbol of her fighting spirit against the constraints that bound her as a married woman. So that when she died her spirit would remain in the fierce energy of the prancing and unafraid tigers.
