Help, I have lost my quilting mojo!!

I can't find my ambition, my inspiration, my enthusiasm, my mojo.  I have lots and lots of project ideas but there they sit.  I can't decide on what to start next.  Maybe I am on overload and need to take a break.  I did sew this week end and finished a couple of little quilt tops.  The first is a quilt called "Kaye's Scrap Squares" from a Fons and Porter Scrap Quilts 2011.  I want to use a flannel backing so I can cuddle up with the dogs this winter!


The second quilt is a tutorial called "This Way and That Way" from Pleasant Home Patterns.  I used a bunch of Fig Tree fabric from my stash.


Okay, I have turned my sewing machine and iron off.  If you have any advice, please let me know!

  1. sometimes i have to revive my mojo. I have a notebook of graph paper and I doodle quilts for a while.

  2. It happens to me, too. It's usually because I'm overwhelmed and have too many projects that I want to do and not enough time to do all of them. It helps to make a list and then prioritize. Don't worry. Your mojo will return.

  4. I clean and reorganize my sewing room for a fresh start. I also do what you do and work on small projects -my "notquilts". Finally I browse pinterest, tumblr, and etsy for inspiration.

  5. Don't feel alone. Maybe you could whip up some of those fleece socks for a change from quilting for awhile. I am sure you will get hit with the bug again real soon.

  6. Sandy - it happens to all super great quilters - just take a little breather. And do what Ramona suggested - sew some socks!!!
