I've had most of this quilt done for some time. All that was left was making the binding, attaching it, and then washing the entire quilt.
I was a little afraid to wash it with all these bold and bright colors on the front.
Even the minky fabric on the back was quite colorful and it caused me some concern, too.
My quilting expert friend Cyndy shared her trick with me.
So I purchased a few boxes of Shout Color Catcher and put four (yes 4!) sheets in the wash in a cold water cycle with my very colorful quilt.
I don't think that Cyndy actually recommended that I cross my fingers (and toes) and say a lot of prayers - but that's what I'm doing.
