In today’s video, I explore three ways to shut off that nagging little voice that says, “just what are you going to make with that?” whenever I want to play. I hope you find my strategies helpful!
“Things to Make” with Design Magic
As I mentioned in the video, my last-ditch strategy for dealing with my pesky little voice is to say “I CAN make such and such a project, but first I have to play.” I am not promising to make it, but telling the little voice that I CAN make something is often enough to shut it down. (At least long enough to play.)
My favorite is this lovely little wall quilt called Scrollwork. The finished quilt is just 25” square, so it is a small project that shows off your design beautifully.

On the Projects page, the Bubble Runner, the Wreath Quilt and the Magic Mats patterns all use DesignMagic designs. The patterns call for pre-cut mylar stencils, but you can substitute the personal designs you create when you join the 30-Day challenge.
Watch your inbox for the details on the 30-Days of Design Magic challenge. I am still working out the details, but I am getting closer to sending out the invitation.
And trust me, this is not going to be a big fancy program — just a simple way for you to join the fun if it appeals to you. And when that pesky little voice pops in with “what are you going to make with that?” You will have an answer!
