You can either buy a box of Shout Color Catchers or a bottle of Synthrapol. I would start with the Synthrapol--it keeps dyes in suspension in the washing water and not on your quilt. You can find the Color catchers in on the laundry section in grocery store. The Synthrapol is available at most fabric/quilting shops or buy it online.
Tried my hand at making booties from a pattern I got online and mine aren't turning out so good and the pattern I got online for baby gown, I gave up on too! But my main reason for getting on here is to try my hand at putting in another pict. and seeing if it is the right size. Here goes!

Well I slept in this morning until 10:00 and felt much better. Think I am past the worst part of it now. Made myself shower, get dressed and then went to a local church bake sale and picked up some goodies (that I can't even try because I am diabetic). Then I went to Wal Mart and stopped in the fabric department and bought a yard of a sheer Christmas fabric to make some small gift bags. Ran into a friend and chatted for a few minutes and then back home where I have spent the last hour unpacking
It's snowing hard! I drove 90 miles to Eau Claire this a.m. with a Guild friend, had a lovely drive down. We hit Mill End Textiles and JoAnn's, then had lunch at Applebee's, then headed home at about 1 pm. It began to mist, then to rain, then to snow, then the road was icey, then it was slippery! I slowed to less than 60, then less than 50, then less than 40! But we made it, all the way! Whew, a stiff introduction to driving again in the snow.
Found fabrics for all of my Boom 6.0 Summer
