Pushme Pullme Block Pattern Launch + Giveaway

I am so excited to make available my Pushme Pullme Block Pattern. The final block measures 15″. It is a quick, easy and versatile pattern.

The overall design came about originally with a quilt in mind, that I am currently making for a friend’s little boy.

My testers have done an amazing job, using the pattern in many ways, highlighting the versatility of the block.  Check out their finishes!!

Ashley @ Wasn’t Quilt in a Day created an amazing pillow with teal and pink arrows, with a popping yellow edging.

Kristel @ Work-in-Progress Girl created a mini quilt and played around with the colors represented in the sashing to make it truly unique.

Mara @ Secretly Stitching used it as the front of a very cute play mat tote for her nephew. Extremely adorable.

Sarah @ Sarah Quilts made some great pillows for Christmas gifts for a male friend. I love the use of black and reds.

The pattern can be found on Craftsy and Etsy. I have also added it to my right-hand side menu for easy access.

To celebrate the launch of my pattern, I have TWO GIVEAWAYS.

  1. For the first giveaway, I will give the winner a copy of the pattern + 2 fat quarters of modern quilting fabric in a color of your choice (ie. blue or green or multi colored).
