Broken Orange Peel Table Runner


i love sewing curves. i could sew curves all day long. it is a nice change of pace from just straight seams all the time. so when i saw that Sew Kind of Wonderful released a pieced orange peel pattern called Mod Citrus, i knew i had to try it out!

since i knew i didn't have time to start a new project, we were starting to pack up our old house at the time, i decided to just make a table runner from some of my bigger scraps. this is going to look great in our new house! (only a week until moving day!)


i used my low volume stash to make a scrappy background. i even pieced a few low volume on low volume orange peels to make a broken orange peel look.


for the quilting i did my standard straight line quilting, but then went back and echoed the orange peels and i love the effect. i think once we are settled in our new home, i am going to have to revisit this pattern and make a much bigger quilt, maybe even bed sized!

Quilt Stats:
Pattern: Mod Citrus by Sew Kind of Wonderful
Dimensions: 16 inches x 40 inches
Quilting: straight line with echoing of the orange peels
Fabric: various designers, including Alison Glass, Elizabeth Hartman, Karen Lewis, and some Cotton+Steel

  1. Oh so beautiful! I have trouble sewing curves but I sure love looking at them. Love that background too, pops beautifully against the bright orange peels!

  2. I so love this. It is simple and fun and just terrific. What a great finish - especially love the touch of going back and emphasizing the peels!

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!
