    Alu, when you have a spill, get the fabric into cold water as soon as possible. Windex has a bleach type solution that saps color right out & the longer it stays in, esp in a plastic bag or close together the more color bleeds out.

    The bag it was in was what I was storing it in... for protection... and we see where that lead... haha, my own fault there... I didn't find it till this evening... But i was lucky, I only lost a row... so I'll improvise... change up the center... and stuff... make it into the baby quilt for my sister... hopefully she has a girl... like the doctor said she will! I'll get one of those already made quilt blocks and add the border... cause I'm pressed for time this next month I can really only complete the one i have now... after I wash it...

    I had no idea Windex could do that.

    It only destroyed the one row, the rest I can get in the wash... so what I'm going to do is just make two quilted pillow cases and stash the scraps for later use.

    Been there. Had a pair of cotton pants hanging on bathroom towel rack, needed to clean glass covered pictures hanging above the towel rack so I sprayed them with Windex. Later found that the Windex spray had gotten on the pants and left white spots. Now I'm very careful whenever I use any kind of spray, never know what kind of damage it can do. May in Jersey
