Creative Fear

Today I’m sharing the start of a new project that terrifies me. In my head it has such potential for global super-stardom, but in reality, I’ll probably be the only one that likes it. Not only is it a quilt, it’s a series of quilts I can envision taking my career in an entirely different direction. I think that is why there’s some trepidation with this project: it’s the start of a new creative journey. If I’ve learned anything about creative fear, it’s that if you conquer it, those projects become your biggest successes. So with that in mind, I’m not going to hesitate anymore, even if I am sewing with one inch squares!

    Go forth and conquer! (I know you will plus you won't know unless you try. I used to hate when my parents said that but it really is true). Good luck with your endeavor.

    Just go with it! Even if you are the only one who likes it (which I doubt will happen), you gotta get your creative on!

    I worked with 1 1/2" squares for 2 ginormous pixel quilts I made and in all honesty those little bits of fabric are addicting. You can do this, we believe in you!!

  10. Cheryl says:

    Go for it! I love the colors!

  11. Lynda says:

    have no idea what you are up to, but I love your fabric choices – colors are the bomb

    Fear is your friend. If you make it, it will be epic so just go with the idea and sparkle like you've never sparkled before.

  15. The O's says:

    you have nothing to fear but fear itself… go for it, as Aunty Pammi says, with your big girl panties on!!

  16. Susie says:

    Sounds very intriguing. Look forward to seeing more

  17. JudyC says:

    Love the colors and those little squares are looking good….be brave and do what your head and your heart tell you…..then the fear will be in the back seat and you cannot lose!! Can't wait to see what happens next!!

  18. Jump in there with both feet and say the hell with your worries!!! Sew them 1 inchers!!! You got this!!!! You are my hero!!!

  19. kiwikid says:

    One inch!!! OMG!!! But I am sure it will be sensational!!! Looking forward to seeing how you go.

  20. Di says:

    Just do it, fabulous Molli!🎉

  21. Pointillism? Watercolors? Sounds interesting-that's the thing about quilting I love-so many avenues to explore, or watch others explore. I'll be watching….

    One inch squares? Ick! But then again your eyesight is probably still fully functioning so do it now if you're going to before you're a blind old bat like me! My theory? What's the worst that could happen, its only fabric and thread after all, its not like its going to turn into a hideous monster and eat you if it all goes tits up!

  23. Jo says:

    I say go for it. I did this with my thoughts and was so happy.

    If you go for it you will conquer. Be happy

  24. One of my favourite mantras is that the best predictor of future behaviour is past behaviour. Whether psychologists agree is one thing, but given the fab quilts you've made already, I'm thinking this one (or series) will be too. Even if I don't end up liking the pattern (heaven forfend), I'm into the fabric pull!
