Quilt the Book | Hopscotch and Ribbons


i finished the third quilt in my Quilt the Book series. i'm using the book Quilts Made with Love by Rachel Griffith, this quilt pattern is called Hopscotch and Ribbons, but since i decided to make it boy fabrics, i'm calling it Mr. Fox Floating Squares. as my goal with Quilt the Book is that all quilts will be donated or gifted, this one is looking for a recipient. but for now i will just build up a stash of ready to donate and gift quilts.

i was able to make this quilt top entirely from my stash! and so i could make from my stash, i change the solid ribbon border to a pieced ribbon border.

i kept the quilting simple, straight lines spaced out about an inch apart. and i just love the crinkle after a wash and dry cycle.


for the back, i pieced the backing to add a little interest. plus this was a great way to use up more of my scraps from the front!

  1. This is lovely Jess - what a great idea to make the quilts from one book. I really should look at the books on my bookshelf for my next quilt!

  2. I love this quilt and your idea (is it to come up with a series of books and make one quilt from each book-right?). I need to do this. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Very nice finish! And I love the idea of making every quilt in a book. I really should use my books more.

  4. What a cutie! It's great that you made this all from stash fabric! (I think I could cover the world in a quilt made solely from my stash!)

  5. It's a great little quilt. i like the pieced ribbons. I think it adds more pizzaz to the quilt than a single fabric would.

  6. This quilt is adorable and I, too, love the idea of quilting your way through an entire book! I'm going to have to give serious thought to doing this myself and I already have the perfect book in mind. Hmmmm......

  7. That's a great idea! I went back and looked at your other post from your Quilt The Book tab (I'm not posting to Instagram) and they are all cute, cute, cute! I have a plethora of books that need to be used this way. Thanks for the inspiration!

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…

906 Quilt | UP Pixel Quilt | A Finished Quilt | Scrap Project 5 | 2019 FAL

I am so excited to have to quilt completed! Truly a labor of love. Made with 1.092 low volume squares and 252 green squares. My family and I moved to the Upper Peninsula (UP) in December 2017. This was completely blind move and we love it up here. I enjoy having access to all of the trails for running in the summer and X-C skiing in the winter. So not long after our move, I started planning a UP quilt. Drawing inspiration from other pixel state quilts, I decided a pixel UP was in order.


Finally this past winter, with pattern drawn up. I started making a couple of test blocks, so I could decide what size I wanted to commit to making. After much debate with myself, I decided on 1.5 inch squares. Then I broke my pattern into 16 patch blocks and started sewing away. This was such a great way to bust through my low volume and green scraps!


I just had to include a picture of the back with all of the pressed open seams. There is something so beautiful about pressed open seams. This was such…

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!
