The nature center I work at has an art sale as its annual fundraiser and I wanted to contribute something to the silent auction. The theme of the show was "art inspired by nature" and thats easy since we work on a beautiful island. I embroidered the butterflies and flowers and quilted them into a wall hanging. I didn't get the dimensions but the butterflies were only about 4" wide max for perspective.
The whole shebang
The Gulf Fritillary
I didn't get a picture of the back but I used Alexander Henry's "Everglades"
I spent wayyyyy too long on it for the amount it sold for, but I was pretty proud of how it came out!
