Today's shopping find: $20 brand new. :)

i found this Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns (new!) while shopping at a LQS Super Bowl Weekend! it's been out of print since 1993 and it's hard to come by online, so when i nabbed it for around $20 i was super excited! i think it's going to be a great quilty reference book for years to come. 


i'm still trucking away on my HST+hexagon project. i've decided to turn into a mini quilt and i'm hoping to finish it up for the Modern Mini Challenge with Jennifer of Ellison Lane Quilts

a healthy addiction.

have any of you heard about the green monster smoothies? well i'm ADDICTED to these things! it's basically a nutrient packed smoothie with frozen fruit, Greek yogurt, milk, and spinach. my favorite combination is 1 cup frozen strawberries, 1/2 cup frozen blue berries, 8 oz. of greek yogurt, 1/2 cup of skim milk, and 3 cups of fresh spinach. yummy! they are so tasty!

It's official. Can't wait to fly with @jenib320 to @sewingsummit

i booked my flight to SLC for Sewing Summit this week. i can't wait to travel with my good friend Jeni

what have you been up to lately?

xo, megan. 


  1. Ooh, you lucky dog! I would love that book! I checked on Amazon for the heck of it since I still haven't spent a gift card I got for Christmas. Yeah, no such luck. You've been to the Sewing Summit, right? Would you recommend leaving Wednesday night to be there for Thursday? I noticed you're waiting to come back on Sunday...

  2. Your hexies look fabulous. My friend just informed me today that The Encyclopedia is expensive on ebay--I got my copy about a month ago for hardly anything. Whew. That never happens! And the Green Monster--everyone seems to love it. The spinach (which I love in salad) is what puts me off, but it's still good, huh?

  3. Hi Megan! Looks great book! I love your small hexies!
    Have a lovely day! x Teje

  4. We are doing the green smoothies too! except no dairy in ours - just frozen fruit, spinach, water, and a little oj for flavor... so yummy!

  5. Ooh, have fun with your new book!

    I keep meaning to ask, about what time will things properly kick off on Thursday for Sewing Summit? I have several flight choices, but a number of them don't arrive in SLC until about 7pm. There's one that I can get that will get me there for 2pm, but I'd have to spend the night before in Paris.

  6. The book is a total score!! Awesome, Megan! And I'm so excited for your Sewing Summit venture. I'm not sure if I'll make it this year, unfortunately.

    And seriously, I love your hexagaon project. It looks wonderful!

  7. The book looks wonderful and the hexies are gorgeous! Love the backing too! :)

  8. love the hexies. Do I need to be worried about Sewing Summit and the ticket sales.They aren't available yet, right? Are we doing a day early for shopping? I missed that last time and don't want to miss it this time.
