I had made my Grandson an American Flag quilt. I had prewashed all the red for the stripes and even pre washed the red flannel for the backing. Was happy with the results for there was not alot of bleeding and figured I was ready to go. I made his quilt and he has been loving it. My DD went and washed it and of course it bled. She took it to the dry cleaners to see if they can come up with a solution and they said they felt it would only be made worse. I feel horrible for the little guy loved it so much. I had used Kona cottons and figured I used the better cottons and less chance of issues. HA Of course this means going to the fabric store again and buying all poly cotton blends to make him another one. ARGH!!
