Do you use Color Catchers?
I don’t pre-wash fabrics when making quilts, so I like to have a way to protect from bleeding dyes when I wash them, at least for the first time. I washed these separately and threw a Color Catcher sheet in with each one.
The one on the left looks pretty much as it did before washing, but the right one collected quite a bit of dye.
Did you guess which one was from which quilt? Not too surprising that the red was the bleeder.
I also use Color Catchers when washing my hand dyed fabrics for the first time, too. Great product!
We arrived back in Tennessee from South Dakota late Sunday night. (I’m still worn out!) Usually we load up, put the pedal down and don’t stop except for the necessary things, but this time we decided to take a loop through the Badlands. See the one highlighted in blue?
Here’s a larger map to show where it is in the state. (The area we are moving to is north of Rapid City.)
The sky was so brilliantly blue that day…amazing!
I’d love to be there at sunset to capture some of the colors in a different light. Might be a nice day trip once we get moved.
My stash is packed, but my quilting fabrics and some other supplies aren’t going anywhere until I do! I consider them to be survival supplies…right up there with food and coffee.
Have a wonderful weekend!
