Her skin might be leathery, but this lovely lady enjoys soaking up the Florida sun just as much as the next girl. The kaleidoscope of butterflies is treating her to her very own “princess” moment. These butterflies are all found in my own backyard. The alligator, fortunately, is not.
Beauty Queen was my 2020 quarantine quilt project. I wasn't working my regular job, so I spent 40 hours a week for a month making this quilt instead.
Thank you to C. Watts for the alligator photo that inspired this quilt.
