Pam Reed | Inspiration in Fabric | Sept 20 - Oct 25

"This quilt was inspired by the magic required to create a beautiful monarch butterfly...from the small egg found on a milkweed leaf that hatches into a baby caterpillar (larvae)...to the transformation into a chrysalis (pupa) and metamorphosis into an adult butterfly.  I hand painted this quilt to get lighter as you move the left to right to coincide with the butterfly getting ready to fly. The butterflies and all the stages of the butterfly were made by free motion sewing. I added numerous hand embellishments to the quilt."
