A little late this week due to trying to get in 2 last days of skiing and then finishing quilting a charity quilt. Lots of time for thinking in both activities and sometime during the week, this image of flowers dancing in the rain came to me. Of course the image in the mind was horizontal with lots of flowers and the result ended up being vertical with three flowers but this was faster. The flowers and leaves were drawn quickly and freehand on tracing paper, then cut out of fabric and fused. I scrunched the brown earth to give it some texture and covered it with tulle. Then I quilted it with iridescent Sulky thread in semi-straight lines. I think it came out very cheerful and spring like-things I'd like to see right now even if it comes with rain!
