Mythic Medusa

My own quilting is stalled again. I'm not going to bother to list the reasons (excuses), but just because I'm not actively working right now doesn't mean I'm not thinking about quilting.

Medusa by Kim at SkyBellArts

I regularly visit Skybellarts because Kim's work is always interesting and innovative. Check out her Friday Collages where Kim produces a collage each week, an excellent way to keep the creativity rolling.

The one I want to share (with Kim's permission) is Medusa, Week 36, Friday Collage. Don't you love the hair? Kim says it sits about 1/4" above the quilt, if you click to enlarge the picture, you can see the dimension better.

When you visit her site, please take a minute to view To Love That Well, her August Journal Quilt.

Here is a link to the JQC2006 album, another great place to visit. Some people did a better job of keeping up than I did.


  1. I agree Jen. Kim's work is always interesting and I was taken with this particularly piece as well. For me it was the eyes.

  2. Very nice...thanks for the reminder to check out her site...always interesting. Hope you can get past being stalled SOON!

  3. I hope you are going to consider entering a piece in the Quilting Arts Calendar 2007 challenge. I immediately thought of you and all the books you read.

  4. Karoday - Kim always does great eyes, doesn't she?

    Sande - I wanted to put a good picture on my blog, so I asked Kim! Hope everyone enjoys it as much as I have.

    Debra - I'm tickled that you'd think of me for this challenge, but it takes more than the ability to read to make it in that competition! I think they chose a great theme, though, don't you?

  5. Thanks for your kind words Jen. I have a love/hate relationship with my commitment to the weekly collage but I think it's helping me understand what I want to do creatively. The process of doing is what makes me happy and Medusa was a joy to create.

    Now, to work on that discipline...

    Hope you "unstall" soon and thanks again.

  6. Kim - wish I could make that commitment because I find what you do always has an "aha" factor!


Good to hear from you!
