Friday Finishes

Lately I have not been very good at posting about my latest sewing ventures. I have been sewing a lot in fact, just not writing. I guess that happens when you have an almost 3 year old and a 7 month old baby. This is just part of this season of life, but I'm trying to make a more concerted effort to write in this space, especially since I'm trying to get a new business idea off the ground.

Without further ado, a few finishes from the last few weeks:

I made this quick and simple baby quilt about two weeks ago for a baby shower. Just used some basic building blocks to make it. Love how it turned out considering I was taking it out of the dryer at 4 in the afternoon the day of the shower! I sure do like to cut it close.

Another baby quilt for a shower I attended last weekend. For this one I used Fat Quarter Shop's free pattern Fat Quarter Fizz and just made the baby size. Best thing about this one, I pulled it entirely from my stash!
And finally I finished up m 1 in a Minion mini for the #minionminiquiltswap on Instagram. I love when the quilt that is in my head works out. I used the Spell it with Fabric for the letters reduced to 50%, created the minion eye pattern myself, and used the paper pieced minion from Fandom in Stitches. Now to just make a few Minion themed extras and I'm set for shipping!

It feels great to get a few projects done, now to just finish up my other WIP's.

Happy Sewing!

Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish it up Friday.

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 ye

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!

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!
