This is the 2015 Hoffman Challenge fabric
I used the Hoffman Challenge fabric together with other stripes and checkers and vintage sari fabric to make the top and 4 large butterflies.
I always work on a base fabric, in this case a white batting.
I chose different pieces of the rainbow fabric to fill out the background, as I wanted to work from dark at the bottom to orange and yellow on the top.
After assembling the various parts I quilted the pieces and finished the coat.
The butterflies are flying over the rainbow.
The top of the coat resembles a morphing butterfly ready to follow and fly away
