If you haven't seen my latest Moda Bake Shop quilt, here is a picture how it was for the project tutorial.
It's not your imagination that the background is slightly pink-hued. It was late in the evening when I finished this quilt, and I couldn't bare to wait until the next day to take pics pre-washed, then wash it. I HAD to wash it *right away*. Well, it didn't even occur to me, that I should have pre-washed the lovely solid red backing. I was nearly in tears when it came out of the wash. It WAS a lot pinker than this even. I should KNOW to prewash saturated solids. Dumb dumb dumb! I have BEEN here before! Did I learn from this mistake? You betcha! Learned a LOT what *not* to do! After it came out pinkish, I oxyclean soaked it, used all the color catchers I had, washed it many many times, and it was 'good enough' to the point I took that picture.
I should have left well-enough alone.
The next day in the laundry isle, I found a 'dye run remover'. I wish I had never seen that product! Don't don't DON'T use it on your cottons....... unless you want them 'bleached'.
It took me a while to get over it enough to take a picture even. I'm over it now that the top from Seascapes is done.....
Aaaand, I have yet another top started from this lovely pile of strips. All from my hoarded stash of FMF <3
