TOPIC: I washed my red and white christmas quilt

Re: I washed my red and white christmas quilt 05 Jan 2011 22:18 #52802

I finally found the Synthropol at a local quilt store, came home and washed my quilt in hot water with a color catcher and it came out perfect!!!! Thanks so much for the advice. I was absolutely sick when I saw all the red bleeding into the white!

I have the color catcher which I did put in with the quilt, but I will see if my Quilt Store has Synthropol when I go to the guild meeting tonight. Thanks.

I would try a load of wash with Synthropol: http://www.dharmatrading.com/html/eng/2127-AA.shtml
(information about Synthropol is on this site, but you may be able to buy it from your local quilt shop)

and a Color Catcher: http://www.shoutitout.com/coupon/06-10-shoutsample/ (for a coupon!)

Please let us know what you try and what works for you.

Oh, how awful! I've never tried it, but some women in a quilt group I attend have used something called Color Catcher -- I think that's the name of it. Apparently did a great job of fixing problems like yours. Also, Alex in one of her classrooms (one of the earlier ones, I think) had a problem like that and got something from her local quilt store, so you might look for that, or check with your local quilt store. Good luck! And please let us know what you try and what happens.

Honestly I thought I'd washed all my red fabric, and when I pulled it out of the machine, I have huge blotches of red from 2 of the fabrics. I worked for 3 years on this quilt!!!!! :x :x Is there anything I can do??? A bleach pen is not going to do it for this mess. :cry: :cry:
