TTMT #89 When my quilt mojo is gone

    1. Thank you! Apparently there is a 4 hour time difference between me and the TTMT blog. I set my YouTube to go live at 9 am EST and 9:15 am EST here on the blog. But when I schedule the post the time reads 5 am and states that there is a 4 hour time difference. I guess that means I’ll have to be more careful next time. I put it live on YouTube so I think it should be good now.

    1. Thanks Jewells! I have too many projects that need to be worked on to allow my mojo to up and disappear. Usually I would just kick back and read a few books but this time I just forced myself to work on something until my creative juices started flowing again. The good news is that it worked!


  1. Dabbling is good!
    I like the close-ups. It’s a nice change…but don’t get used to it.
    I agree with the lovely ladies above–your mojo hasn’t gone anywhere. I understand weeks (like mine) when you don’t feel you anything interesting to show, but you still got a ton done, and it will add up soon. And sometimes monotony (like heart blocks) can feel less like the excitement of making each different block (like paper piecing with FIS). But it’s still good for you, productive, and enjoyable for us. Win–win–win.
    Great to (almost) see you. Have a great week.

    1. Thanks! I have too many projects that need lots of work to allow a dead mojo to take up residence for too long. I found that if I just keep working on something then the creativity will return faster than if I just closed the craft room door and found something else to do.

  2. Your hand switched blocks look fabulous. The first quilt I ever attempted was hand stitched because I didn’t own a machine and couldn’t afford one. It’s a ufo I stumbled across maybe two years ago. Some day maybe hmmm… my blocks don’t look so good 😬

    I’ll have to think about doing the 9 patch a day next year. I have a bit to much happening in 2019 for it, but I do enjoy seeing yours.

    I really like your happy fun baby quilts. I find I need to switch up what I’m doing or I get bored. So go quilt some tops and come back to block/top making later. I need variety.

    Happy Crafting

    1. Thanks! Variety is a good thing. I’ve never understood those crafters that only work on one project at a time. I think it’s awesome but not something that I can do.


  3. I agree with the others – mojo looks in full force to me. 🙂 I really like the “diamond” blocks, too. Some child/family is going to love that. What group is making the hand pieced quilt? I’d like to see the completed ones. Your 9-patch blocks look wonderful. Look forward to see your quilting choices for the quilts. 🙂

    1. Thanks Sarah! I forced the mojo this week 😉 If I didn’t keep working on something then I would be ever farther behind.

      Here is one of the main blogs that is hosting the hand pieced qal –

      There should be a link to the facebook group if you would like to see what fabrics others have chosen. The blog has a link party each week also.
