I have finished quilting and binding the three hearts quilt. Please check my previous posts for details about this quilt.
The fabric I had separated as "use me" in my stash was the one I used for the binding and the simple label. I really like the backing fabric as well.
This is what it looks like before washing. I used two different fabrics for the background, and just like in the book, the one white looks a lot darker than the other when looking at it on the quilt. In real life, the whites are both very similar to each other.
This is what it looks like after washing. The pencil markings came off great, but there was one spot I used the eraser to erase (old habits die hard), and that little blue stain is still on the quilt. I did play around with the photo program to try to get the colors to look truer in all of these photos. The quilt finishes at 13" x 17".
I like it. I think it will be a great addition to my quilt wall collection.
