of red are there?
Remember when I had the bleeding red fabric? I normally pre-wash my larger pieces of fabric, but that time I was in a hurry. In the past I always would pre-wash my red fabrics, as they do tend to bleed.
Case in point. I am gathering up fabric for the red and white quilt I'd like to make for my new sofa.
So this time I threw a color catcher into the wash load with these red fabrics.
WOW! What a deep shade of pink.
So feeling that this was a lot of dye that was released from the fabric, I decided I would run the reds through another load.
Yep, color catcher gave me another lovely sheet of pinks.
So next time you will be using reds in your quilt, do you think you would pre-wash the fabric, or take the chance??
