Alison Glass Charm Cherry Quilt : A Finished Quilt

Another month, another UFO becomes a completed quilt! For my LQS CEO Club, this Alison Glass quilt was my project to complete and bonus as it was one of my projects for the second quarter for the finish a long! And I don't know why I waited so long to finish this one, since it come together quickly once I got back to working on it. I used the free pattern Charm Pack Cherry Quilt from Fat Quarter Shop.

At the beginning of the month I had the initial strips for the nine patch blocks sewn together. So I took those strips and actually finished the blocks. All in all it took me about a day and half of sewing and cutting (in between caring for kiddos) to get the top done. Like I said, why did it take me so long to finish. I guess I really need to have deadlines to help get my butt in gear when it comes to finishing up quilts.

For the quilting I did a combination of straight line and a serpentine stitch. I divided the quilt into uneven quadrants and in two opposite corners I did quilted by following the outline of the section I was working in. Then in the other quadrants I did a radial from the center. I really love the combination of the straight stitch with the serpentine stitch and the texture it created it amazing!

It is a great feeling to have another quilt done and off my list. Plus I'm all ready doing better this quarter than last quarter with my finishes!! Now to see if I can finish my other projects for the quarter and just a billion other projects floating around in my head.

A few outtakes from my quilt shoot. Nora just had to help mama, while I was taking pictures. So she decided she would hold the quilt for mama.

Silly kiddo, she loves helping mama. And loves the quilts that mama makes!

  1. I love the quilting on this! I might have to get a second machine just so that I can do that serpentine stitch!

    1. I really love the serpentine stitch, it is one of my favorites. Thanks for stopping by.

  2. I love all the pretty colors and the quilting. Great job!

  3. Aw, Nora is so cute holding up the quilt! It looks enormous next to her :)

    I really like the gray background against the bright colors in this quilt. Makes it more edgy than the expected white.

    The quilting looks really great, too. You're right, that combo of straight and serpentine gives a wonderful texture.

    1. Nora loves helping mama and has decided she likes to help with I'm quilting as well. I love a gray background, one of my go to for backgrounds lately. Thanks for stopping by.

  4. Oh I like the effect of the squares versus the rectangles and the fabrics are fab. Fun!

    1. Thanks, this has become one of my favorite quilts.

  5. Those Alison Glass prints are so much fun in this pattern. The quilt looks awesome!

    1. Thank you, I love the Alison Glass prints in this pattern, they are just perfect.

  6. Great fabric choice! Allison Glass' fabrics pop against the soft gray. I love the quilting - the offset, the straight and squiggly (looking like the bike path print!) - something I can see myself actually doing! I need deadlines, too. Self-imposed or like a holiday or birthday, it all works! Congrats on a lovely finish!

    1. The straight and serpentine stitch really do work well together. And those deadlines are a must, thanks for stopping by.

  7. Lovely! I was just watching the Charm Pack Cherry tutorial over the weekend, deciding if I want to do one. I love yours!

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…

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…

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
