Way, way back….a long time ago, inspiration sprung forth from a Powerpoint presentation and a block design was created. Yes, it has taken 3 years all but my Push-me Pull-me quilt is all done. This means, my son has finally received a handmade quilt from me, on his 9th birthday.
I loved how the block turned out in the blues, with white or grey sashing. I really like the secondary design of the pluses in the between spaces.
The quilt was decided at some stage, was a little thin for a twin sized quilt. So, I added the 10″ and 5″ strips in my son’s favorite color, which gave a great contrast and I think making it a little more modern traditional.
As this was a twin, I decided to ship it off for quilting to Sarah at Crinkle Love. I used the Southwestern quilting pattern which I think complemented the arrow design. My favorite part is those Indian inspired eagle shapes.
Lastly, for binding I used a navy blue print from April Rhodes with a splash of Tangerine Crosshatch (Carolyn Friedlander print) for one of the border sides. I block matched the binding which you can see at the top here.
