The rain and the transformation into snowflakes were the inspiration for this art quilt. The background is an acrylic hand painted abstract with blue and green strokes. The bold horizontal and vertical blue lines are matting used for weaving rag rugs and symbolize the rainwater running down the window. I opened the strips and sewed decorative blue glass bead ribbon inside the strips. The glass beads hanging from the ribbon are the raindrops. I hand-embroidered white wet flakes and inserted white pearls to tell of the coming snow.
