A few months back, I won the Stashbuster Yahoo Group's challenge for no buy. I was so happy. Today, not so much.
I trimmed all those squares into smaller squares to make this quilt. Perfect for one of my friend's daughters for a love quilt. The third one. I sewed the binding on threw it in the wash with synthropol and a color catcher sheet ( I'm anal about using both) Take out of the dryer and saw this!!!!!!
No matter how many times I wash it ( I tried 4 times) it kept running and getting all over the quilt. I was fit to be tied.
With the bonus hsts from trimming the corners, I started this quilt for hubby- and of course both fabrics are in it also. Meaning it will run all over this one. It's only hand quilted and 100's of hours invested in it.
I don't know why when something says to prewash things aren't prewashed...this is a perfect example of why I hate joining in some swaps/challenges.
Such a bad blogger
