Wash Your Fabric

Be sure to wash your fabric!  Susan suggested the Color Catchers and I use them all the time now.  As you can see, I had to use them several times for the reds and for the black and whites.  These are good Quilt Shop quality fabrics so don't be fooled.  Always wash your strong colors, like black, red and navy.
Susan also suggests you use Retayne.  She uses it all the time.

  1. Just wanted to say quickly, I've recently had a fading experience with a lovely new piece of green fabric. Fortunately I had thrown in a Color Catcher, which came out a lovely shade and was used in making a greeting card when it dried! I had never had trouble with greens (my favorite color) before, and was greatly surprised. Thought you might want to know.

    Hope you are well. I love reading your blog--you ladies are certainly productive and do wonderful work! And it makes me feel a bit closer to you over the miles!
