  2. This will be a cheery quilt to work on in the cold of winter! I will be joining OMG this month at least. I think a snow day (no kids but it cramps my style) will go a long way to finishing my tablerunner!

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…

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…

Rainbow Mini Science Fair Quilt | A Finished Mini Quilt | Scrap Project 7

This is one of those patterns that has been on my to-do list for years! Finally I stitched up the Mini Science Fair Quilt for myself! I remember when I purchased the pattern, that I would get to it right away, but I of course found myself distracted by some new fabric/pattern and this was set aside.

Well the thing about moving from one room to another, I found some mini quilt patterns that were forgotten about. So I decided since I wasn't sewing up any large quilts for a little while, now would be a perfect time to make a few of those long forgotten mini quilts. Plus it helps that I need some new mini quilts to hang on my walls in my new sewing room.


For my version, I went digging in my scrap bins and found a beautiful little rainbow to make my Mini Science Fair. Some of these fabrics I've had for awhile and others are recent additions to the scrap bins. When I decided on my rainbow idea, i didn't know if the end product would look like it did in my head. It works for me …
