    I made a beautiful Sunbonnet Sue quilt and then I washed it and the navy blue fabric bled all over the white fabric. Does anyone know how I can now get the navy out of the white? I have learned a great lesson, of testing my fabrics ahead of time. Thank you for any help you can give me!!!

    someone else (use the search feature and search for color/fabric bleed) suggested Synthropol. I haven't tried it but hopefully it helps. Like I said there are alot of discussions regarding this. Here is another thread regarding color bleeding, good luck hopefully it will work.

    My local Hancock store sells a color run remover made by Carbona, which I have used with some success. The one I had was a yard sale find, not sure if it had been through the dryer or not. I soaked overnight, then washed and rinsed twice, and you could barely tell where the runs had been.

    I wash all my fabric before using it, and you might want to think about that, too.
