Geometric Death Star Pillow Cover : A Finished Quilt

for awhile now, i have had grand plans to sew up Quiet Play's various paper pieced patterns. well i have quilters ADD and leap from one project to another. thus my pile of WiP's that i'm trying to finish (though i know i probably won't have them fully complete by 2017). so i just never got around to actually sewing up one of her patterns. that has finally changed.


i decided to add one last minute Christmas gift to my list. and since the recipient is a big Star Wars fan, particularly Darth Vader i decided a Geometric Death Star pillow was in order for him.

i love how fast this come together. i was able to sew this during one of the girl's nap times. and a project that i can start and finish during nap time is a win win in my book. i saved the quilting for the next day!


i wanted to keep the quilting minimal, but also reinforce the paper piecing. so i went with a diagonal grid, with a bit of hand stitching to define the superlaser focus lens. i really hope he enjoys it and now i of course need to make one for myself!


of course while i was trying to take pictures, Nora decided that she needed to pose with Nemo and the Death Star pillow. i have a sneaking suspicion that if this pillow cover wasn't a Christmas gift, this one would be trying to claim it as her own, since she is becoming quite the Star Wars fan herself.

Quit Stats
Pattern: Geometric Death Star by Quiet Play
Dimensions: roughly 15.5 inches square
Quilting: diagonal grid, with detail hand stitching
Fabrics: various black and gray scraps (Uppercase & Cotton+Steel to name a few), with a low volume background

Happy Sewing!

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!
