It's finally Friday again, and in addition, an unencumbered Friday! Now that the 12 Days of Christmas in July blog hop is over, we can get back to whooping it up - so let's get started!!
Well, as you know, for nearly two weeks I was working on the 12 Days of Christmas in July blog hop and quilt-along. During that time, I also finished a t-shirt quilt for a friend that had a really short deadline. I didn't get to work on anything much that required a lot creativity during that time... so sad! I also finished listening to the last book in a twelve-book series that I absolutely loved... Monday morning when I sat down at my sewing machine, I drew an absolute blank! Nothing sprang to mind that I wanted to work on. ACK! Where did my mojo go??? I wandered around aimlessly for a while, actually did some cleaning around the house (that's how you can tell how desperate I was!) and finally, late afternoon, I remembered the barn quilt that Jamie shared during the 12 Days of Christmas in July blog hop. I took a look at the pattern and scanned my stash - woohoo! Three beautiful pieces of Kaffe Fassett fabric that had been in the stash for a while, and a little bit of Kona white. Perfect! A few hours of piecing and quilting, and I'm ready to introduce:
"How I Got My Mojo Back"
This pretty little quilt is only about 29" square, and was really very simple to work up. Jamie used some new-to-me tricks to create this block, which is always exciting!
I even went so far as to put a hanging sleeve on the back - here you can see it hanging on my new hall shelf. I used straight line quilting to finish this piece, which is easy to see in this picture.
It also looks really cute as a table topper, too! I love pieces that can pull double duty.
Since working on this cute little quilt brought back my missing mojo, I decided that should be its name - hence "How I Got My Mojo Back"!
And within five minutes of posting it on Instagram, I had someone asking to buy it - so now it will be making someone else happy too!
So - - - can I get a whoop whoop?
And now it's your turn!
What's got you whooping it up this week?
What's making you do a little happy dance?
Share! We want to dance right along with you -
And it's always more fun to dance with friends!
The party will stay open until Sunday midnight.
Hope to see you there!
