I can’t believe it’s time for the 2015 Blogger’s Quilt Festival, an annual explosion of quilty creativity organized by Amy’s Creative Side. Many thanks to Amy Ellis for doing this again.
My entry in Art Quilts is Hazy Shade of Winter. I finished it in late 2014, inspired by the bare trees and bittersweet I saw on my regular walks along an old towpath near my home.
I used commercial (both sides) and hand dyed fabrics. The trees were improvisationally pieced. Quilting was done with a walking foot using Aurifil thread and Sulky 12 weight thread. I quilted a tree outline with the heavier thread.
