Geometric Millennium Falcon : A Finished Mini Quilt


the second quilt for our wall of geekdom is finished!

i love decorating my house with mini quilts that i have made or have received from swaps. so in my family room, there is a blank wall behind one of our couches. so i decided it was the perfect spot to display some of our favorite fandoms.

i love using up small scraps! Quiet Play patterns are great for using those small scraps. for my Millennium Falcom i used a wide variety of low volume scraps. for the background kept it simple with a solid black.


for the quilting, i decided on organic straight lines after a failed free motion quilting fail. while i was upset after the fail, i recovered nicely and went back to my tried and true straight lines and i'm glad i did! i love the texture that the organic lines create.


for the back, i found this awesome Millennium Falcon print from JoAnn. time to start working on my next mini for our wall of geekdom!

Quilt Stats
Pattern: Geometric Millennium Falcon by Quiet Play

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…
