Inspiration from Nature...

 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.
