Happy New Year! 2020 – Here We Come


IMG_2662Happy New Year Baby Janes!  2020 brings a new start and lots of opportunity for growth, learning and sewing!  If you haven’t already checked it out, we posted a new video on our Youtube channel, featuring our blocks for rows I and J, and our challenge for this month.  In a nutshell, instead of doing Row K, we are helping you get a head start on your New Years resolutions by giving this month’s prize to anyone who completes a row that they haven’t already finished.  That’s right, get a head start on all of your WIP’s so that you can sew along with row K in February.

For more details and to see the sample of the prize – a “Sew-Together” bag, check out the video here.

Scrappy Sew and So Episode 10

We are getting so close to finishing the main blocks now!  While it is very exciting, I am starting to get anxious about the triangles… anyone else feeling the same way?

Mid-Month Check in!

How’s everyone doing this month with the “F” Row?  I finished my last block last night and I firmly believe that they belong in this row because I did utter a few choice “F” words while working on them!  I’ll show them later when Melissa and I do our video for the month, however, if you haven’t started them yet, you will want to get going!  I feel like this row took me a lot longer to complete and there were more blocks that needed to be hand sewn.

Speaking of videos, if you haven’t had the chance to check our latest Episode of Scrappy Sew and So on Youtube, this one is not to be missed!  We have a special guest with us, Amanda Elias from Quilter’s Stash Builder and we discuss our sponsor for this month @robertjlessard.  You can see his Instagram account here and check out so of his photos below this post:
