I wanted to finish this before I left for AZ and I made it! I really love how this turned out. The first pictures here are before washing.
My blocks finish at 3 by 6 inches and the quilt is approximately 54 by 69 inches.
The lines of quilting are about every half inch. I clearly wasn’t worried about perfection! I also lost a few points in the binding at the top and sides. I care not!
Here are the after washing pictures:
Since these fabrics are hand dyed, I was warned in the accompanying pattern (that I did not use), that there was a good chance the colors would run when washed. I had heard from several people who had used similar kits that they had this issue. So it was a rather bold move on my part to use a white backing fabric. What can I say? I was in a hurry to get it on the frame!
I washed it on cold with the only color catcher I had left. I can tell that the fabrics bled at all. The color catcher was only slightly discolored. The white backing is still white.
I guess it was my lucky day!
Oh, how I love that texture!
I like mine much better!
Have a great day!
