Weeping and Wailing and Gnashing of Teeth

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?
