Finished Quilts (from the last few months)

so the last few months have been a bit crazy. we put our house on the market, sold it, moved out, and recently found a new home in the UP (7 hours away from our old home). obviously from my last post, this space was not a priority. well now that we are just waiting until we can finish our move, it felt like a great time to get my blog a little attention again.

in between working on the house and taking care of children, i was able to finish a lot of smaller quilt projects. such as this little quilt for a new baby girl for a family at our church. I love a good stash buster and this one certainly did the job.

my quilt group had a movie mini quilt challenge. i love Guardians of the Galaxy and the soundtrack is amazing. so i wanted to pay homage to the music and created this Awesome Mix Vol. 1 mini quilt. i designed this pattern a few years ago for a swap and decided to make it a little smaller this time around.

 and since i was on a movie kick at that time. i felt is was time to finally test and finish my Geometric Deadpool paper pieced pattern.

 of course while trying to clean out my sewing room, meant a few more projects were started. for instance this pillow cushions came about since i needed to clean out some of my Lizzy House scraps and low volume scraps. a little 5 inch cross block and a pair of cushions later. perfect excuse to use some more of my stash!

 continuing the cleaning, i found this Finding Dory panel and charm squares. so my oldest daughter finally has her Dory quilt. (of course right now it is packed away in storage, but still it is done!)

finally in my quest to finish up small projects i made another cushion our of the leftover Scrappy Lizzy House cross blocks. this time i set them on point. i really love this block on point, it just may need to become a much larger quilt at some point.

so there you have it, a few of my smaller projects that i haven't shared here due to house craziness. i have a few larger projects that will receive their own post. hopefully it won't take me months to write them.

  1. So good to see what you have been up to. I did a similar thing - moving out of a big house - but we went smaller. I’ll be posting my new sewing room this week.

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…
