Mariposa Series

I really enjoyed this process, so I am going to do more.  This is the first in a series of butterflies that I am making.  I made this one for the SAQA Benefit Auction which will take place this fall.  It is based on a photo of the Red Peacock butterfly that was photographed at the Cockrell Butterfly Center at the Museum of Natural Science in Houston, TX.

I am finally in a position to create at will.  With the baby, and then the end of the school year, and finally moving into our house, I haven't had the time or energy to bring my creative desires to fruition.  I am hoping this is just the catalyst I need! 

About a year ago, I created this quilt for my husband in honor of our first wedding anniversary.  I like to call this technique "Coloring Book Quilting".
