I don't remember what the piecing technique is called, maybe "flip & fold"? You sew your fabric to muslin and then keep adding bits until it looks like what you want. Its hard to see the quilting, but basically it was meant to look like rain drops in the main body of the quilt. I did lines and then added circles in...sort of like "----o-----o----o" only it was vertical! I also used a shiny silver thread to add a glisten-effect, like water. (Clever???)
In keeping with the garden theme, leaves were in the outer border and inner sashing, with narrow piano keys on the inner border for some texture.
And a pic of the back....you can sort of see the "rain" in this one.
