Sunday Lately : Wk. 2

Okay, I'm loving the prompts so far. It is nice to stop and think about what is going on in life. All too often we just get caught up in the daily grind and don't stop and think about all of the amazing things that are going on right around us! 

This past week, we finally got some snow and I just couldn't resist snapping a few photos. This one is my favorite!

Doing
Sewing. Cleaning. Organizing. Decluttering. And man I felt wonderful once I took done my Christmas decorations down, they were really starting to feel like clutter. Nice to have clean, open spaces again! Not to say they stay clean all the time with a 2 year old, but at least she will clean up her toys when prompted.

Appreciating
My awesome hubby! On Monday we will be celebrating out 7th wedding anniversary! He is my rock, he has seen me at my highs, and my lows. Carried me through a difficult miscarriage and the birth of our first daughter and will do it again in March! It is difficult to convey in words just how much he means to me.

Designing
Right now I'm working on my #rainbowminiswap quilt. It has been fun digging through my scraps and rediscovering fun fabrics that I kinda forgot about. I'm also working on a pixelated heart mini for my home to hang for Valentine's Day.


Humming
Immortals by Fall Out Boy.

Expecting
Our second little girl in another 8 weeks. I'm excited and nervous about the changes and challenges, but know that with time we will figure it out.

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…

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!

Lizzy House Garden Snail Quilt | A Finished Quilt | 2019 FAL

After 2 years, this quilt is finally done! I started this quilt in January 2017 during the Garden Snail Quilt Snail Paced Sew-along. I definitely worked at a snails pace with this one.

I finished piecing the blocks together January 2018 and had the top put together later that month. I put a back together in the early summer, but of course I didn't actually do anything with the top.


This quilt is made almost entirely from my Lizzy House stash. (most of the snail bodies are other designers or solids) It feels wonderful to actually use my favorite fabric for a quilt that will be just for me; since my youngest has laid claim to my last Lizzy House quilt.


For the quilting I did my all time favorite serpentine stitch on my Opal 650. The crinkle effect is just perfect. Plus I did my favorite chunky binding to give the quilt a more framed look without adding a border. I have a quick tutorial in my saved Instagram Stories here.


This is my first completed project from my 2019 FAL list!!! S…
