I decided to focus just upon the moment of emergence--the moment the butterfly comes out of the cocoon. The cocoon breaks open and the color comes out. I quilted the background with gold spirals and painted it with a rainbow of colors.  I then added the black and gray fabric around the edges.   I hand stitched the gray fabric with embroidery floss and wrapped the edges around the back.  See the blog for more background.
