Ok, this may seem like an ignorant question, but you ladies who embroider onto quilt blocks, can the quilt be properly laundered after that?
I mean, does the embroidery thread or floss tend to bleed colour onto your quilt?
I'm planning on embroidering a monogram onto the center block of my mariner's compass that I'm working on. It's a commission, and it's for a gift for someone special, so the last thing I want is for the recipiant to wash her quilt and it gets ruined because of the embroidery floss...
I will be using DMC floss, if it changes anything. Should I soak my floss in mr. clean or somethign else first just to be sure?
My embroidery will be a dark-ish royal blue, on a white center....
Please give me your opinions and other options if you can think of something that could help me out.
Thanks in advance :)
