Quilt the Book : Unconditional

over the summer i finished my fourth Quilt the Book series! i am using the book Quilts Made with Love by Rachel Griffith, this pattern is called Unconditional. since we had a wedding for my husband's best man this past summer i knew i was going to make a quilt and this was the perfect fit.

this quilt was another stash buster. all of the fabric minus the background came from my stash. i love when i can create a quilt from my stash.

and since i finished this one right before gifting, i only have the one picture. this was a fun challenge for me to finish this before my deadline. 

i love HST, but after sewing and trimming 300 of them, i was less than thrilled. i love that they are so versatile, but man they can take some time to create. that is something i plan on working on this coming year, just to enjoy the process and take it one step at a time. 

this was just a fun project quilt to work on and i hope the happy couple love it for years to come. 

Quilt Stats:
Pattern: Unconditional from Quilts Made with Love
Dimensions: 72 inches x 72 inches
Quilting: Straight line crosshatch
Fabric: various fabrics from my stash

  1. That is such a beautiful quilt! I love your use of rainbow colors against the negative space, and the pop of black works great here!

  2. What a cool design! Those colors really pop against that white background. I'm sure this quilt will be loved and used for many years to come.

  3. What book are you quilting through? I love HST's also but I wonder how it would be for me to trim through 300+ of them. There are so many methods available to do them, I will give several methods a try on my next HST project to see which suits me best.

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…

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…
