Does flannel bleed more than other fabrics?
I am not an accomplished sewer, despite loving making quilts. I was so happy that I was able to finish a grocery cart from a McCall's pattern that is intended as a gift. I made it with a minkee interior, and flannel exterior. It turned out very nice...BUT...
Now that it's done there is dye transfer from the chocolate colored flannel (bebe chic flannel) to the icy blue minkee, which looks much like baby had an accident in there! :shock: :shock: I DID prewash the fabrics separately before starting this. The first dye transfer occurred during the construction process. I washed it again after it was finished hoping that would take care of it. I looked at it coming out of the wash and it looked good, so I tossed it in the dryer, which I'm afriad was a huge mistake becuase on closer inspection there is new dye transfer on the edges which happened in the washing process and now it's been through the dryer. :oops:
So, I am REMAKING the entire project :cry:. A chocolate with blue dot fabric quilter's cotton version is available, rather than the flannel. Will that bleed too, or is it flannel that will not hold the color?
Thanks for your input.
