Bleeding

I had no idea that thread could bleed color too! I used "Coats Machine Quilting and Crafts Multicolor Mercerized Cotton" thread that I had in stash on my batting samples. I love the colors. They popped.

But when I washed them, I had most of them a pale green/aqua color. Rewashed them with a color catcher sheet, and they turned out white. Whew! At least it wasn't a special project for somebody. If I had not been able to get the color out, I wouldn't have been too upset.



My daffodils are wonderful.



I think we finally have spring!

Thanks, 
Lin

Lovely daffodils! Color catchers are definitely a must. It's amazing what a little sheet can do!

Thanks for the info on the thread, I think most people are careful about fabrics, but I had not even thought about thread bleeding.

Hey! Visiting from the new group! Thread bleeds!? Oh man! Thank you for the info! I had no idea either! I am addicted to those color catchers though! Those things are life savers!

Hi Lin. Thanks for the heads up ... never thought about the thread, or knew it could bleed! All the more reasons for color catchers!
