There are two elements that create transparency quilts: design and color/fabric selection. From a design perspective, transparency is first and foremost about overlapping shapes. The Push-Pull quilt design explores overlapping triangular shapes.
With the design element taken care of, the focus for the first Push-Pull Quilt Along instructions focus on color/fabric selection. If you have already purchased the Push-Pull Quilt Along pattern, you will receive an email today with the Fabric Selection PDF. If you haven’t joined in yet, simply purchase the Push-Pull Quilt Along and I will add you to the email list and get the information out to you soon! Note: Check your spam directory if you don’t see the email!
The Push-Pull Quilt Along fabric selection PDF has 6 pages of information and coloring pages to help you select your fabrics.
Below are a selection of Fabric Kits offered by quilt along sponsor Needle and Foot and pre-selected colorways from quilt along sponsor Fat Quarter Shop for those looking for a little more fabric selection guidance. I include required backing yardage for both regular width of fabric and wide backings in the pattern. If you are interested in a wide backing, Backside Fabrics is offering a 15% off coupon that is good through June 30, 2020: backsidejetgirl1920. I’ll remind you of this coupon code when we get to the finishing instructions, too!
Note that when I selected fabrics for the Wayward Transparency Quilt Along, so much fabric was purchased that some fabrics went out of stock. So if you can’t find what you need using the links below, leave a comment or send me an email and I’ll pull out color cards and adjust as best I can along the way. Looking for something in particular that you don’t see below? Leave a comment and I will either email you back with suggestions or run an updated post with more colorway options depending on the number of requests I receive.

What’s Next? Upcoming QAL Schedule
The beginning of the quilt along schedule is very relaxed to account for the upcoming holidays, so the next set of instructions will be released on January 6th, 2020. In 2020, the quilt along will settle into a 3-week pace with a full month and a half for the final finishing and any catch up.
