This is a picture of a friend visiting one of our Butterfly Bushes last summer. For this challenge I tightly cropped my little visitor to make him be the focus of the quilt. I selected the kite layout both for its tie-in with flight and because I liked the way it pixelated the iamge just a little and made it seem as though we were looing at the garden through a wavy antique window. The borders are from the Auto Border library and pick up the color in the blossom as well as in the flutterby’s wings.

Now for the Million Dollar Question, do I actully piece this with 1/2 inch shapes??? Barb, how would you go about turning this into a “Real quilt”
