2019 Finish Along | Quarter 2 Projects


Ah, winter is coming to an end here in the UP. The snow is melting and spring is on the way. The robins have returned, what a wonderful sign!

This quarter is going to be a struggle for me. After our long winter, I am just itching to get out on the trails and hike with my family. But I also want to keep making progress on my WiP's!


I am bringing just one unfinished item from my Q1 list, this Bonnie & Camille Churn Dash Quilt. I just didn't have time to finish quilting this one. So all I need to do is finish quilting and bind!


Last year I sewed along with the 100 block in 100 days. Well I kinda fell off the bandwagon around day 70-something. I took 60 of those blocks and modified the Sliding Scale pattern from the Tula Pink 100 Modern Blocks book to create this rainbow quilt. Now to just finish it!


I finished this City Tiles quilt top in March 2018. Yet another quilt top that has been cluttering up my sewing space. 


Another bee quilt! I can't even remember when this one was started. The last few weeks I have been working to finish any blocks, sashing, and borders. So now this one is ready for quilting. Though my dilemma now is, quilt myself or sent it out for quilting?!

So four quilts that need quilting, here's to hoping for a productive quarter!

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!
