You’re probably asking yourself, “What is Sew Mojo?” And that’s a valid question, because technically, it’s made up. According to the Williams dictionary of made up things Suzy says (that’s me):
Sew Mojo, noun, 1. joy received during the act of sewing 2. excitement at the thought of or during the process of designing and creating with fabric 3. the art of sewing without fear of mistakes, wasting fabric or the end result.
Whether you are a brand new quilter, a seasoned sewist, a textiles artist with designer’s block or even a crafter looking for a fun, simple project, this Sew Mojo mini quilt series is perfect for you. The average quilter can make one of these minis in an afternoon. For a newbie, this is a great way to practice working with fabric and your machine without the huge commitment of making an entire quilt.
Sew Mojo is a series of 4 mini quilt “lessons” designed to teach basic quilting skills as well as loosen up and break some of the quilting rules that can bog us sewists down.
In the blog post about Sew Mojo, 8 different textile artists put their personal spin on this pattern. Below is a quote about the process…
“I went into this project thinking I’d just have a cool Suzy Quilts wannabe mini for my sewing room haha, but, by the time I finished, I felt like a legit textile artist (p.s. I am definitely not, but I felt like one for at least a brief moment in time). I’ve made many minis, but this was the first one that gave me such an immense amount of satisfaction and inspired me in so many ways as an artist and quilter. Sounds dramatic, I know, but it’s true! And yes, making quilts is an art form in-of-itself, but there’s something unique about making a mini with no rigid rules or guidelines and with the intention to make it a piece of art to frame later. Suzy’s pattern gives you the freedom to explore and think outside the mini quilt box, but, at the same time, also gives really helpful instruction and diagrams to make it happen.” – Lindsey, Pen and Paper Patterns
