2018 Quilty Goals


as 2017 comes to a close, i've reflected on what i've done this year. i continued to teach beginning sewing classes, as well as a knit garment class. i taught a block of the month and taught a summer kids sewing class. so for teaching i branched out and have discovered that i love it! i have finished plenty of quilt and sewn more garments for myself and my girls. but now it is time to start determining what i want to accomplish in 2018!

as with years prior i want to finish off those quilty projects that i didn't finish this year!
  • Checkered Bed quilt (still on the list from last year)
  • Sunshine Ripples quilt
  • Lizzy House Snail Quilt
  • Lizzy House EPP Party Quilt
  • Rainbow Boxed in Quilt
  • Bonnie & Camille Vice Versa Sampler Quilt
  • I Spy Polaroid Quilt
  • Mini Charm Chocolate Quilt
most of this quilts are just waiting for me to quilt. the tops are done, but with the decision to move mid-way through the summer, i tended work on small projects instead of my bigger ones. but now that we are moved and starting to settle in, it is time to get finish this quilts before i start too many new projects!

new quilts to work on in 2018
  • Heartland Heritage Sampler (BOM) from Inspiring Stitches
  • Tula Pink Modern Sampler #100days100blocks2018 with Gnome Angel
  • Elizabeth Hartman All the Animals Sew-A-Long with Gnome Angel
  • a new Christmas quilt (haven't decided what i want to make, but i'm thinking something from Thimble Blossoms)
  • begin to design and sell my own quilt patterns!
personal goals for 2018
  • read 52 books
  • run my first half-marathon
  • HAVE FUN with my hubby and kiddos in our new town!
and of course i know i will add new projects, take away ones that are not working, but generally i just want to enjoy our new life in the UP of Michigan!

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! A Block this is a Pineapple Mini, pattern designed by me I have two girls, Nora and Enna. Nora is a 1st grader this year and Enna started preschool. Plus we also have o

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!
