Hand dyed cottons, fused, hand and machine quilted. 21.25 x 9.25"

I made these tops late yesterday and was too sleepy to stitch them until today. Then there was the comment which made me a bit cautious about even working on them.

What one fears above all is boring the viewer. But thanks to you, my dear friends, I am feeling quite encouraged and even added a teeny bit more Zatsification to the mix.

    I just love your little quilts. Will you bring some of theme to Switzerland, so we can see them in reality?

    I meant to say this in my earlier comment - it seems you have become more open to the fabric. You accept the gradiations, (msp)blobs, wells of color, and let them be be a focal part in the presentation. To me, this shows you have learned that you don't need to manipulate as much. You're listening to the fabric, and it had quite a bit to tell you all along. You and fabric are a better pair from it.

    I love these pieces. Any chance you will try for and even different format? Round? Triangular?

  6. I've only just discovered your blog and don't know what sort of work you were doing earlier ... but wanted to say that I LOVE what you are doing with colours and shapes. These pieces are singing beautiful songs.

    I as a long time voyueristic/procrastinating sometime artist am LOVING this whole process. Every morning my nine year old daughter and I look to see what you have created and if you have commented on the process that got you there, we read that too. My Daughter loves abstract art and colour (I like order and earth tones), but you inspire both of us in that what you're really doing (in my humble opinion) is working out what is instinctive about your art for yourself and not worrying about what outside elements say about your art or what value they place on it. I wish that I had learned that at age 9, then still grappling with perfectionism and my imaginary critics in my 30's. Thanks for sharing and I am so happy for you- I think your new energy for your craft really shows!

  9. You can't let other people try to direct your work, Mel. Just keep making what you need to make. It's beautiful.

    Mel,
    I love them ALL. Each design takes my eyes on a long colorful journey through a small space. Wonderful.

    I wear a ring with a snippet of Tennyson engraved on it. It says," Our echoes roll from soul to soul and grow, forever and forever". It's to remind me about the power of words spoken. (Or written) Yours are very kind. I hope that comes back to you 100 fold.

  13. These little jewels couldn't/shouldn't be viewed any other way than you've presented them. You've definitely got the feel for the horizontal format. I love your art and appreciate your sharing the process and thoughts behind/in it. Thank you.

    Mrs. Mel, These are so beautiful. They are brightening my cold and foggy mornings. I have learned so much from you in being willing to change, experiment, and most importantly - to listen to my inner voice. Thank you. (I wonder if people asked Georgia O' when she was going to stop painting flowers and skulls and do some "real" painting.) Cheers from a fan, Jeannie

  15. Melody,

    These quilts of yours are helping me get through the winter doldrums. I look forward every morning to looking at your creations.

    Getting comments from people about your work is one of the benefits of blogging. It also a drawback.

    Keep up the great work!

  16. I love looking at what you've created each day. It amazes me to see you create something that's obviously part of the same series, and yet still fresh. Thank you!

  17. I love the subtle representation of real objects in these two! Especially the windows. Beautiful.

  18. man...I'm working on a windows quilt right now.

    We need to quit worrying if the other sister is gonna think we're "copying" and just accept that we are connected long distance.

    BTW, I get a new zit or zat every month with my period. Oh well.
