i came across the "modern quilt guild" website and found they were having a contest/challange.

you were to take a picture (or an idea) as your inspiration and design a quilt based on it.

the first thought that came to mind was pictures we have taken of monarchs during late summer.  as i attempt to photogragh the butterflies i focus in on the monarch and everything else in the backround becomes blurred.  i also thought that the colors of this butterfly would make a very striking quilt. 

here are the pictures of the final result.

contest / challange results are announce on december 15th.  at that time i'll be able to see all the other quilts that were entered and see what others drew as their inspiration.
