My friend Michelle over at Factotum Of The Arts has designed a wonderful quilt block, the Push Me Pull Me block. Here is a model quilt that she designed as a mock-up of a final quilt:
Isn’t she so talented? I love how this looks, and I’ve already pulled a stack of fabric that I want to use to create a whole quilt. When she asked for pattern testers, I jumped at the chance to try this pattern. I can’t wait to make this block again – and I’m thinking it would also make a fabulous bee block.
Michelle’s directions are super clear, and the blocks comes together beautiful with perfect seams. Trust me, if I can match up the seams – anyone can. I’m notorious for not cutting perfectly, but this was very clear and easy to follow. I only had to pin a few steps and I made sure to follow her directions of ironing the seams open. Want to see what I made? Here it is:
My husband said it is the coolest thing I’ve made so far. Whoa, high praise there! He is not one to use hyperbole or mince words, so Michelle, your block has made it!!!
I want to play around with color placement a little more…
I just love how these arrows look!
And, finally – here is the back. This is where I found my color inspiration!
Michelle, thank you for sharing such an amazing block – I can’t wait to see the other projects made for the Push Me Pull Me block!
Be sure to check out the other pattern testers and what they created!
And, you should definitely head over to Michelle’s blog to see everything else she’s made! She is such a quilting inspiration – I love seeing what she makes! (And, head over to Craftsy to buy this pattern!)
