WiP Wednesday : Sewing for Baby #2

Seeing as my due date is officially 4 weeks away, I thought this would be the week to finally get around to some of my last minute baby sewing.


Ever since I made a Poolside Tote for my MIL for Christmas I have wanted to make myself one. Well I'm using the excuse that I need a cute hospital bag as a reason to make one. I have all of the fabric and interfacing cut out, now it's time to fuse and start sewing!


And while I'm at it, what's another quick baby quilt. I love a nice plus quilt and this one is just so fun. We are having a girl, but I am partial to green and blue, so guess what both of my girls baby quilts were created with green and blue. (Don't get me wrong I enjoy pink from time to time, but does everything for a baby girl have to be pink, I think not!)

Hoping to have this finished up by the weekend so I can get back to my swap sewing that I want to complete before this little girl makes her debut!

Happy Sewing!

  3. Good luck with the Baby! I was ready to start sewing four weeks before my due date. Unfortunately my (then) youngest daughter was admitted to hospital on that day and I got next to no sewing completed before baby was born! (She's fine now)

    I agree with you, baby girl quilts don't have to be all pink same as baby boy quilts can have pink in them!

    1. Glad to hear she is doing fine now. Sewing is keeping my mind occupied until baby come.

  4. I hear you on the baby girl=pink thing! I just had boy/girl twins in November and I'm amazed at how clearly defined boy colours vs. girl colours are. I made plus quilts for my kiddos too. This one has a great colour palette!

    1. Congrats on twins! That's why when I was pregnant with my first I didn't tell any extended family that I was having a girl, because I didn't want to be overloaded with pink items.

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…

2017 New Quilt Blogger Blog Hop

for the last several weeks i have been participating in the 2017 New Quilt Bloggers Blog Hop, hosted by Yvonne (Quilting Jet Girl), Beth (Cooking Up Quilts), and Leanne (She Can Quilt). while i have been blogging for a little while, this blog hop has been great to hone my blogging skills and meet other quilt bloggers.

i have been crafty most of my life, i even learned to sew when i was younger. but it didn't really stick. after college i was living in Iowa and on a whim i bought a cheap sewing machine and began a back and forth with sewing. fast forward a few years, i got married and pulled that sewing machine out again and this time actually made a quilt top (that sat for at least 3 years before i quilted it). sewing again was pushed to the side as i was finishing my master's program and job hunting. 
well after landing a job, moving, looking for a house. we found out we were expecting. though it was not to be and i miscarried in march 2011. during the next year sewing becam…

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…
