Wow! Is time ever flying!?! Happy first day of September everyone! I know that many people have mixed feelings about this month, summer is over for another year (sad face), a new school year is beginning (if you or your children are returning to school), retreats, classes and activities also tend to start, many people actually make resolutions for September, and like it or not, some stores are actually putting out Christmas stuff!!! (what?!?) For me, September means returning to work – or no more sewing in my basement in my track pants! I know that Melissa will agree with me when I say that this summer went by so quickly, and we didn’t get finished everything that we wanted to do. But as there are always scraps of fabric, there is always more quilting to be done!
Speaking of finishing, we hope that you have managed to finish the “F Row”. It was a doozy! But like all of the rows that we have finished so far, we can look back and reflect on how far we have come, right? We haven’t announced a winner yet for the “F Row”, but keep watching Instagram, as Melissa will announce it on the @scrappysewandso page, with the final reveal of the prize later on today.
One of my lofty goals for the summer was to work ahead on my Dear Jane rows. I did a little bit, but only a few blocks into “Row G”. So far, I find “Row G” quite challenging and I also feel like there is the added pressure of focal point as it is the centre of the quilt (which my rainbow layout really emphasizes – poor planning on my part lol). BUT … you are going to want to finish this row for sure because we have another awesome sponsor with an amazing prize!
We are so pleased to announce that this month our sponsor is Hobbs Batting! I mostly do my quilting on my domestic machine and Hobbs Batting is my go-to for quilting as it always of a reliable and excellent quality and easily available in my area. I also really enjoy the loft that it provides – and I’ve never experienced any bearding! To check out all the different qualities of batting available from Hobbs please check out their website here:
AND… this months lucky winner, who posts all 13 blocks and tags us(@scrappysewandso) and Hobbs (@hobbsbatting), will win a throw size selection of Hobbs Premium Batting Line: The Tuscany Collection
Good luck Baby Janes! And remember… this row marks halfway through the squares! WE CAN DO IT!!!
