Today's inspiration comes from one of my work projects. As some of you know, my "full-time" job is working for a construction company as a project manager. One of our latest projects involves butterflies. Yes, butterflies! And for part of the decor, the client used beautiful butterfly mosaics.
I'm really sad that I didn't have my nice camera, but the cell phone quality will have to do!
I used the flash in an attempt to catch the irridescent quality of the wings. So beautiful. It makes me want to sew a whole bunch of butterfly blocks!
I did a few searches and the following blocks stood out to me:

And of course, this is just the tip of the ice-berg for Butterfly quilt blocks.
I used some extra squares from my Granny Square quilt from Blue Elephant Stitches' tutorial here and created this cute butterfly using the same techniques published by Blue Elephant Stitches.
I think a butterfly quilt may be in my future :)
