WiP Wednesday | September Edition


Time again for a WiP post.

I am starting to make some great progress on my WiP's! It feels so great to being checking of quilts from my list!


While we did a room swap this past August. I came across a bunch of mini quilt patterns that I had purchased but never actually stitched up. Now that I'm all moved into my new sewing space, I need more mini quilts for my walls. So those mini quilt patterns to the rescue. First up is Mini Science Fair by Jaybird Quilts. I am just loving these little triangles and hexagons!


Even better, I can finally stitch again on my Bernina Activa 220 without it freezing up on me! My husband replaced a little chip on the power supply motherboard and she has been stitching perfectly without freezes, YAY!


This is just a fun little scrap busting mini quilt. I just love a scrap busting quilt.


I'm finishing up the binding on my Tula Pink 100 Modern quilt blocks quilt! I am so happy that this one is finally in the home stretch!


On Tuesday, I spent the day obtaining my long arm rental certification. So that means I finished the quilting on two quilts in one day!! The one in the picture above is my first practice quilt and I am pretty happy with out it turned out! And the quilt pictured below is my second quilt.


Needless to say, I love long arm quilting! Now to get figure out when I can quilt up Enna's bed quilt!

Happy Stitching!

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!
