Rainbow Fancy Forest | A Finished Quilt


so this quilt has been completed for a few weeks, i just haven't gotten around to posting about it. this year seems to be the year of sewing Elizabeth Hartman patterns. that probably has something to do with Gnome Angel's Elizabeth Hartman Sew-A-Long, but i will take it. since it seems to be a trend with me to own her patterns for awhile before i actual stitch it up.

for my version of Fancy Forest, i knew i wanted to add in plenty of color, but still do the small quilt. so that meant not following to pattern for picking colors (go figure i decide to go against the grain) but i love my rainbow version.

this is yet another stash busting quilting. minus the background this quilt came from my stash and it felt wonderful sewing with some of my favorite fabrics. there is plenty of Lizzy House, Alison Glass, Cotton+Steel, Kaffe Fassett, and others. for the background i used Essex Yarn Dyed Linen in Indigo.

i can't wait to hang this in my bedroom, whenever it gets painted, hopefully soon.

Quilt Stats:
Pattern: Fancy Forest by Elizabeth Hartman
Dimensions: 35 inches x 47 inches
Quilting: Straight Line, random plaid
Fabrics: Lizzy House, Alison Glass, Cotton+Steel, Kaffe Fassett, and Essex Yarn Dyed Linen

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…

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!
