Since I can’t really consider myself a quilter anymore, I’m not sure I should be giving quilting advice but I highly recommend Shout’s Color Catchers.
Every single piece of fabric in my stash has been washed before it ever landed in the fabric closet. Sometimes when I would pull a fabric out to use in a quilt, if it seemed like a bleeder, I’d wash it again before using it in the quilt. This is the quilt I washed this morning.
Even though I knew the fabrics had been washed before going into the quilt, I threw a Color Catcher in the wash and this is how it came out.
The backing is solid white so any amount of bleeding could have been a disaster but there is not one bit of bleeding onto the white.
The inspiration for this quilt was a border print.
It actually had several borders.
I made this quilt when I couldn’t get enough lime green so it will always be one of my favorite Christmas quilts and this will be one I hope Nicole and Addie love some day.
