Roses in the Rain

I just made this little art quilt for a partner in a swap (on Swap-bot), it's called, Roses in the Rain --the rain being the quilting and the many little crystals following the "rain". 

We don't have roses yet, it's a very late spring that seemed to be  holding its breath -- partially opened daffodils and forsythia for a week of chilly rain the end of the April. But now that May is here the sun is out and the temperature heads toward 70 in the afternoons. The flowers are abundant, the grass is brilliantly green. Yes, spring finally came. The roses are not going to wait much longer either. But we will have rain too.
