I had nurtured my hydrangea plant for a couple of years and finally had blooms on it when a heavy rainstorm hit. I was worried that I might not have any petals left with the hard rain, and went outside during a lull in the storm to see that the blossoms had survived. It inspired me to make this art wall quilt using a snippet technique to form the flowers. It is covered in tulle and machine quilted. I then hand beaded it using clear bugle beads to simulate the rain.
