The photograph below is from my mother-in-law's bougainvilla bush from a few years ago. I decided it should become a quilt when we relocated to Mexico City, Mexico & found a home on a street named Bougainvilla Street (Paseo de Bugambilias). I drew a pattern by looking at this photo. After several changes & additions, my drawing turned out the exact size of my quilt. This was a really good exercise in drawing from a photo. I added an additional butterfly due to the fabric I had.
