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…

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!

Lizzy House Garden Snail Quilt | A Finished Quilt | 2019 FAL

After 2 years, this quilt is finally done! I started this quilt in January 2017 during the Garden Snail Quilt Snail Paced Sew-along. I definitely worked at a snails pace with this one.

I finished piecing the blocks together January 2018 and had the top put together later that month. I put a back together in the early summer, but of course I didn't actually do anything with the top.


This quilt is made almost entirely from my Lizzy House stash. (most of the snail bodies are other designers or solids) It feels wonderful to actually use my favorite fabric for a quilt that will be just for me; since my youngest has laid claim to my last Lizzy House quilt.


For the quilting I did my all time favorite serpentine stitch on my Opal 650. The crinkle effect is just perfect. Plus I did my favorite chunky binding to give the quilt a more framed look without adding a border. I have a quick tutorial in my saved Instagram Stories here.


This is my first completed project from my 2019 FAL list!!! S…
