WiP Wednesday | July Edition


I haven't done a WiP Wednesday in quite awhile, so I thought today was a good day to update on my current works in progress. 

We are hitting the middle of summer and I'm quite impressed with my productivity! It does help that we don't have a hard set schedule to keep this summer. Plus with it being so hot during the day, my kids and I seek shelter inside. So that just means more sewing and quilting time for mama! 

My UP Pixel Quilt has been pressed, backing prepared, and now basted! I think I am just going to do some straight line quilting, then add some hand quilting details.


After the kids go to bed, I've been hand quilting my quilt from the 100 blocks 100 days event last year. I am halfway through quilting. So maybe in another month it will actually be finished!


Finishing the binding on my Modern Maples quilt. For the binding I did some big stitch binding (Kitchen Table Quilting has a great tutorial) and I just love this look. Over the last year I have been making my binding chunky (start with 3.5 inch strips) and finishing it with a big stitch and it is really my favorite way to finish a quilt. I'm hoping to have a tutorial for my chunky binding in the next few weeks.

Time to get back to the sewing room and keep my productivity going!

Happy Stitching!

  1. I was skimming my list of blogs for today and saw your quilt pic and thought to myself that looks like the UP. Had to open it to see and it was. Looks great!

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!

Triangle Rainbow Spectrum Mini Quilt | A Finished Quilt

Another quilt finish, oh my! Right before my family and I moved to the UP, a few of my quilty friends started a little swap group. We made a mini with our theme for that swap. Then we would get together for dinner and swap mini's. So I have continued to swap with them and traveling down to visit and swap, minus a few weather hiccups. Well this round we went virtual due to COVID-19, but still had an enjoyable time. And bonus for me I didn't have to travel. So this round was rainbow themed. Between putting our house of the market and our upcoming move, I was at a lose as to what I wanted to make. Lately I've been playing around with different angles and I love triangles, so why not a rainbow triangle mini. I used 2 inch equilateral triangles cut from my stash. I played around with the layout quite a bit it get it just right. Once it was stitched together, I added the the low volume white as a border. To finish it off I used black for my binding, I love that it looks like a fr
