I washed Jean’s quilt to to get it ready to send. Washing makes it a little puffier and tightens the quilting a bit. I pulled it out of the dryer and was horrified to see that the little red squares bled! Nooooooooooooo! I was just sick! After I stopped hyperventilating, it still took me 24 hours to come to grips with the fact that I was going to have to start again.
I don’t think you can see it very well in the pictures. It is much more noticeable to the naked eye.
I hadn’t checked the color fastness and now I am paying a hefty price. I started over yesterday and will finish today or tomorrow.
It isn’t all bad. I had quite a few squares already cut and I already have the piecing process down. I am going to tweak the quilt a little too. A solid blue for the binding and a couple other little things that only I would notice. Also, my shipping boxes just arrived and I wouldn’t have had those to use, so that that is a good thing as well.
Have to look for that silver lining, right?
