A Hazy Shade of Winter

I created this quilt in Washington, Il and it is called A Hazy Shade of Winter. My quilt measures 13X13.

 

There were no song titles humming through my brain, so I went to my iTunes and started looking at the song titles. When I saw A Hazy Shade of Winter, I knew I had my inspiration. If you go to this link, www.youtube.com/watch?v=wSd4QJBEMvk you will see the video and hear A Hazy Shade of Winter by Simon and Garfunkel that fueled my inspiration. I went to my stash and found that my fabrics were not hazy enough but then I thought, what about the ‘wrong side’. Perfect, just the hazy shades I was looking for. The lyrics in the song repeatedly mention going round and round and that gave me the idea of a pattern that goes round and round.

 

This was fun, I am looking forward to the next challenge. This is the first quilt challenge I have entered. My daughter encouraged me to enter as she is also entering.
