Sunshine Ripples Quilt | A Finished Quilt | One Monthly Goal Finish


I am so very happy to finally have this quilt completed! The blocks were started in 2017 during my month as queen for my Bee Hive quilting group run through Blossom Heart Quilts. After I received my blocks they just sat in a box. Then later in the year we moved.


After we moved (2018) I got the itch to finish the blocks I needed. Then back into the box they went. Well finally last year (2019) I actually stitched the top together and added the border. I had good intentions of finishing this quilt before the end of year. But life, and it just didn't happen.


So as 2020 started I decided it was time to just finish this quilt. I booked time on the long arm and spent the day quilting this. I did some straight line quilting and on the long arm with channel locks it was so easy. No pain of wrangling the quilt through my domestic sewing machine. Long arm quilting is defiantly how I plan to quilt the last 3 quilt tops I have left from last year.


I made this quilt for my youngest daughter Enna. Her favorite colors are yellow and red, so I'm so glad to have this done before she decided she didn't like those colors anymore. And by the look on her face she is pretty happy with it. Plus I backed it with cuddle and it is just lovely to snuggle with.


Glad 2020 is off to a great start!

Happy Stitching!

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.

Pattern: designed by me, inspired by buffalo plaid scarves and quilts
