This is the sentiment I want to send along to everyone…
That is what I keep telling myself. I was doing so well for a while, hanging on to the positive and ignoring the negative. But the last few weeks have taken their toll. Although I continue to quilt each day, I have lost my Blogging mojo. In fact, I have had very little screen time in the past few months. I really need to regroup and get the “zip” back into my daily routine. I miss my blogging friends!!
Happy Quilting to all
and may you have something in your life this week to alleviate the “grumps”!
What do you do when you have more projects going than you could possibly finish in a year… you simply start something new!
Many of you sent more than one block to me for the “Community Supper” quilt, which I have incorporated into this one.
Aptly named, “Pumpkin Patch”, this month’s mini was a joy to make. I added a bit of extra batting to the pumpkins and hand stitched the curves to simulate the real thing.
Who doesn’t love pumpkins? They are cute, colorful and they taste delicious.

I am very thankful for the sew-a-longs I have been involved with this year. They have (for the most part) truly saved me from overthinking (I’ve actually done very little thinking at all in 2020) my quilting endeavors.
I laughed when I pulled the lucky number “7” out the mask and was delighted to find out that the commenter was Janet (RogueQuilts). Janet has made nearly 500 masks!! She is a super participant in our monthly mini’s. I’m sure she will make something fantastic with these little charm squares.
And after all the mask making, I hope she takes a few moments to enjoy the latest issues of “Primitive Quilts and Projects” and Quiltmania’s “Simply Vintage”.
After the 50th mask came off my machine, I thought – “enough”! But the requests kept coming and so another 50 marched through and then out the door. I ran out of elastic weeks ago and resorted to cutting up old t-shirts. They are actually more comfortable than the elastic! I’m sure we are all sick of making masks and gowns and caps, but as quilters we cannot say no to those in need and so… here is 101!
My mind has turned to mush during these crazy times and I feel like my quilting has suffered. I’d love to hear your thoughts on this subject. If you have been in production, what was “your” breaking point?
