Sewing Room Mini Quilts


so two years ago, i made the "SEW" mini from the Moda Spell it with Fabric patterns, reduced by 50%. my original plan was to create a series for my sewing room of "CUT", "PRESS", and "QUILT". well that didn't happen and the idea has been on the back burner ever since.

so when my modern quilt group organized a UFO to CEO program, i signed up and made my list with the few remaining items from my WIP pile and some projects that i've had the fabric for but just never got around to creating.


after working on some of my other WIP's this was a nice palette cleanser. A simple and straight forward, that came together quickly. since i wanted to word and fabric choices to be the stars, i kept the quilting simple with organic straight lines, my favorite for a fast finish!

i love knocking out WIP's. so far i have been pretty good and not starting any major projects without making progress on my list of WIP's first, only 3 major WIP's to go!

Quilt Stats
Pattern: Spell it with Fabric by Moda, reduced by 50%
Dimensions: vary
Quilting: organic straight lines
Fabric: Plenty of Tula Pink, Alison Glass, and many more.

    1. I used the Spell it with Fabric from Moda. It's a free pattern that you can find on the Moda Bakeshop blog, or by searching on Pinterest. I reduced the pattern by half for this minis.

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…
