Hola friendos! The last two weeks have been a complete blur and I’ve totally missed reading about everyone’s projects. But I’ll catch up, promise! While I catch up on my blog reads, here’s a little of what I’ve been up to…
We recently returned from a trip to Glacier National Park. Holy smokes, this place is gorgeous. We hiked 24 miles in two days and my feet are still angry. More excuse to sit down and sew 🙂
What could be better than working on my EPP project at a campground in the park? I love that I can say that part of this quilt was made in Glacier NP. This is where I’m currently at on this project. I absolutely love how slow it is going. Weird huh?!
When we returned home, I had 4 days to get my sister’s bridal shower quilt done before her wedding. I had the top pretty much done, but that was it.
I decided to use all the extra scraps (especially the yellows and purples!) for a pieced back. I’ve never really pieced a back before, so that was a new challenge. Not exactly one I wanted on such a time crunch.
I seriously was still binding this as we entered the town where my sister lives. I finished the last few stitches and then we went inside and I gave it to her! Unfortunately that means I don’t have any finished pictures of this. Perhaps another trip down to see her is in order.
And in other exciting news, my sister is married! This is us right beforehand. Happy times!
For being an amazing matron of honor (I totally was), my sis gave me an etsy gift card. Best sister ever! Part of my gift card was used on this:
Kona Color Card!!!! I live sooo far from any solid fabrics and I kept ordering weird colors online. This is going to be a life saver.
And here’s my latest fabric purchases. I didn’t buy them to use together, but they look pretty great, so I might have to change my mind.
Last but not least, I found the cutest iphone wallpaper the other day that totally makes me think of quilts & happiness…
You should totally get it too and we can be pwbffs! (phone wallpaper best friends forever!)

I love your EPP. Your points are just perfect, WOW! And yes a Kona Color Card is a lifesaver. I order my fabric online too, and it has kept me from ordering the wrong color solid so many times.
Thanks for checking out my blog! 🙂 I’m so excited to put my color card into action. Glad to hear it has been useful for you. ps. just popped over to your blog… love the colors for your nursery. It is going to be adorable!
Those EPP star fabric choices are so perfect! I love where that’s headed. And I do that all the time – end up liking my unintentional shopping cart fabric pairings.
Thanks! I love where the EPP is head as well, but now I’m stuck! Not sure what colors to add next… I guess that’s part of the fun?!
Very pretty EPP stars! The quilt for your sister is wonderful! She will treasure it for many years! Nice that you included autographs that make it more special. Your fabric selection is really pretty together. I really love the hint of gray pin dot and stripe fabrics! Anyways I want to say a huge thank you for visiting mynblog and leaving such a sweet comment about my tote bag!
Thanks for stopping by and for all your kind words about my projects. I hope you have a great week of quilting! 🙂
Oh, I love your sister’s wedding quilt! In fact, I might steal the layout. Thanks! 😉
Steal away! 🙂
Love the EPP! Very cute and you’ll never regret that colour card purchase – I haven’t – lifesaver! You & your sister look gorgous together, congrats Sis! I’m being a MoH next weekend – scared.com! 🙂
Thanks! It was a lot of fun being MoH but it was super scary giving her a toast. I hope you have a great time!!
