I was able to finish hand stitching the binding on a lap sized version of Push-Pull the day after Thanksgiving, and I am so smitten with how it all came together!
I used Northcott ColorWorks Premium Solids in Iris, Heather, and Lilac Mist. The backing is Iris and the binding is Heather. After quilting and binding, it finished at 65″ x 70″ (rounding down to the nearest whole number).
I was able to get the quilt completed in time to submit to QuiltCon. My artist’s statement reads:
“Life tugs us in different directions, and I designed Push-Pull thinking about how the constraints of societal norms try to push and pull us into boxes of conformity. The quilting was inspired by considering magnetic fields and how magnets have the similar push-pull forces acting on ferrous metallic objects within their spheres of influence.”
As a reminder, today is the final day that you can sign up to join the Push-Pull Quilt Along for the sale price of $12. The quilt along kicks off tomorrow!
