Start of a mini quilt – Pushme Pullme Block

Yesterday, I launched my “Pushme Pullme” Block pattern. It was so much fun to see what the testers created. For many, it was the first time I had seen their projects, so it was a surprise for me as well.  Being inspired by what they had made, and realizing that I needed to have my own Pushme Pullme project to keep, I started on a mini quilt of four blocks. I managed to sew up the first block already…

Inspiration came from:

  1. The backing fabric  which I chose first and inspired the color choices. This is Mod Guys Gray Madison, from the Mod Guys & Girls collection by Michael Miller Fabrics.MMNovelty-CX5906-GRAY-D-450
  2. Kristel’s mini quilt project and how she played with the sashing. I loved this idea so much, that I mixed the green with grey sashing.
  3. I am planning on trying the circular quilting that Ashley did for her pillow on this mini quilt. I am a little nervous about this though.
  4. Lastly, I have fallen in love recently with Kona sunrise and sunset bundles/charms, mostly I think for the graduation of the color values. I want to incorporate that graduation of value with the orange arrows.

Take a look at this blog post that goes through the construction of the block. Also, don’t forget the giveaway and check out my tester’s projects. They have all done a fabulous job.

      Thank you….I so loved how you mixed up the sashing!!! and thought if I did it all green it would look a little to much so your idea works perfectly 🙂
