Sometimes, if we have been doing major quilting we can get a little...un-inspired. At these times, I like to take a break and sew something quick and fun. 

Recently, I had made 4 quilts in a very short time and was feeling a little "burned out". So, I decided I would make a sewing machine caddy, thread catcher, pin cushion combo. It was really fun, quick and easy and a quick fix for those of us who like to see a finished profect.

So, my tip is, take a break from big projects and do something quick and easy to get refreshed :)

Happy Quilting!

I enjoy making small projects.  I like to give little sewing and quilting projects as gifts.  I wish there were more books with quick little projects.  I made one of those sewing caddies too, they are really useful.  tish

i do this when i am making a lot of complicated quilts.   i make an easy one to remember that i can make a quilt in a couple of days, i really can.   you're right it is a nice breather and then you're ready to tackle the monster again.

Good idea Debbie, it does us all good to do something different from time to time.

Life is like a quilt...bits & pieces, joy & sorrow, stitched with love
