Date Claimer

Good Morning Ladies

I am surfing the web this morning and came across this great suggestion on the Moda Bake Shop regarding joining batting.  I know a few of us use fusible interfacing to join batting but this shows a way to cut that should make the join less obvious.  Clever

And now onto super important info
Hope to see you all there to Stitch, Scrap, Socialise and fundraise.

National Sewing Month

In the USA September is
"National Sewing Month".
"In 1982, President Ronald Reagan declared September as National Sewing Month “in recognition of the importance of home sewing to our Nation.”  Wouldn't it be great if it was an international celebration, too." (quote from Modabake Shop website.)
So what are you working on this September?
My 2 sewing projects for this month is a secret birthday quilt for my mum's 60th, shhhhh!!
And my other one is the "Hashtag" quilt by Camille Roskelley that I am doing through the Craftsy online class.  This quilt requires 1 jelly roll, "Salt Air" by Cosmo Cricket and quiet a bit of background fabric, Bella Solid white.  So far I have only made one block, looking good :)  I will update you with more progress as the month of September goes on.
Happy National Sewing Month USA and all those other countries who enjoy the craft of sewing no matter what it is that you are making this month!
