Helen Hazon – Flight
Inspiration: The annual migration pattern of Monarch butterflies is a natural wonder. They are so delicate yet have the instinct and stamina to travel huge distances to ensure the survival of their species.
Millions of Monarchs migrate thousands of miles South to find a warm place to spend the winter. In spring they start on the journey north again and, over several generations, they reach their Summer feeding and breeding grounds.
My design of migrating butterflies is based on the Monarchs although I have changed their colours. I used printing, stencils and applique then added machine embroidery and quilting.
