Schnitzel & Boo Mini Quilt Swap Round 3 : Mini Come What May

Wanted to share the quilt I made for my partner for Round 3 of the Schnitzel & Boo Mini Quilt Swap. This is the second time that I have participated in this swap and it was just as fun as it was over the summer. It did get a little crazy with the holidays, but with a little planning on my part, I had my mini pieced together and ready for quilting before I had to finish my Christmas sewing. 

I decided that this time around I wanted to try a new quilt pattern, so I landed on the Mini Come What May pattern by Jaybird Quilts. There is only one block to this pattern, making a fairly easy pattern to make, the tricky part is keeping your fabrics in the right order, so you will end up with the woven look. What helped me was using low volume fabrics for the weaving underneath and brighter fabrics for the weaving on top. I love how it turned out. This is one pattern I will be making again, so I can have one to hang up in my home.

I of course added some extras, including a zipped pouch, fabric scraps, mini charm pack, and this little initial mini quilt. I love the Spell it With Fabric patterns by Moda Fabrics. I have used them for a few different mini quilts and love them. So for this one I decided I would make a scrappy version (now I need to make a few for my family)!

Now it's time to work on my other swaps and try and finish them up before baby girl joins us in early March.

2019 Quilters Meet & Greet

Benita of Victoriana Quilt Designs approached me if I wanted to participate in a Quilter's Meet and Greet. And since both kiddos are in school this year, I actually have a little more time to actually blog, so I figured this was a great time to join the fun.

So here is a little more about me, my quilting journey, and life in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan!

Hi! I'm Jess Pugh and I grew up in Ludington, Michigan, famous for the Lake Michigan Carferry the S.S. Badger. Went to Michigan State University for my undergrad in botany and later my Master's at University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee for my MLIS.


I was set up with my husband on a blind date, and were married 6 months later. In January 2020 we will be celebrating 12 years of marriage! This by far was one of the craziest things I've done!
I have two girls, Nora and Enna. Nora is a 1st grader this year and Enna started preschool. Plus we also have our 10 year old black lab, Berrie.
I started sewing as a way to help heal…

906 Quilt | UP Pixel Quilt | A Finished Quilt | Scrap Project 5 | 2019 FAL

I am so excited to have to quilt completed! Truly a labor of love. Made with 1.092 low volume squares and 252 green squares. My family and I moved to the Upper Peninsula (UP) in December 2017. This was completely blind move and we love it up here. I enjoy having access to all of the trails for running in the summer and X-C skiing in the winter. So not long after our move, I started planning a UP quilt. Drawing inspiration from other pixel state quilts, I decided a pixel UP was in order.


Finally this past winter, with pattern drawn up. I started making a couple of test blocks, so I could decide what size I wanted to commit to making. After much debate with myself, I decided on 1.5 inch squares. Then I broke my pattern into 16 patch blocks and started sewing away. This was such a great way to bust through my low volume and green scraps!


I just had to include a picture of the back with all of the pressed open seams. There is something so beautiful about pressed open seams. This was such…

Buffalo Plaid Quilt : A Finished Quilt

my last big Christmas gift is done! this year i wanted to make my BIL and SIL quilts, as i've made quilts for the kiddos, i figured it was their turn for a quilt. well i needed one more masculine quilt and i've always wanted to make a buffalo plaid quilt so this was perfect!

at first i was not looking forward to making this one, with all of the cutting and putting the small squares together. but after some thinking i decided i would strip piece and streamline the process. i was able to piece the top together in one day as opposed to multiple days if i would have cut individual squares.

i love this quilt, of course i now want to make one for myself, but that will be for another time.

Quilt Stats
Pattern: designed by me, inspired by buffalo plaid scarves and quilts
Dimensions: 61.5 inches x 74.5 inches
Quilting: Straight line echo
Fabric: Moda Bella solids, Black, Gray, Bleached White, and Marigold for the binding

Happy Sewing!
