Last week, during my severe ADD episode, my attention was diverted to some 45-degree diamonds that I thought would work nicely in a minimalist setting.
I know, the photo is not the greatest, but I felt like the jewel tones could benefit from a dash of brighter color. So I looked in my solids drawer and came across some hand-dyed fat 8ths that I think I bought for my Hunter Star quilt (I'll have to go to the laptop to get a photo of that quilt).
While steam pressing the fat 8ths I noticed this on my NEW ironing board cover.
Hmm, did I spill some wine? Or did one of the fabrics bleed? Time to do some scientific research!
Uh, yes, the fabric bled! What bugs me is that I had washed all of these bits once.
Good thing I discovered this before putting those fabrics in the quilt. Tragedy averted, so far! But now I have to go look at Hunters Star and see if I actually used any it that one because it hasn't been washed.
Cross your fingers !!!
