Inspiration always starts with color and cloth.  This quilt is a combination.  The fabric speaks to me.  The colors play well together.

During the process of choosing fabrics and design, I remembered the Barbara Kingsolver book, “Flight Behavior”. Coincidentally, my granddaughter raised butterflies this spring.

The idea of saving the monarchs by planting milkweed became my focus.
