Default And if that does not work?

Both Retayne fabrics before and Color Catchers in final wash and still had bleeding with some fabrics! Do you think Oxywash might help? Has been washed and dried. Not "pressed" yet.

Before washing:

After: rh-ret-plus-cc.jpg

I will try and let you know! Final image is a mistake

Very pretty. My fabrics don't often bleed, I always wash in cold water Tide and color catchers, at least three. I use them until they start coming apart. Seems the more expensive fabrics bleed more.

Beautiful quilt. I don't see the bleeding, but that could be because of my color challenged eyes!

​Is it just the one square? I would be tempted to hand piece in another square.

I'm afraid I don't see it either unless it it the one pink piece with the red flowers on it - then it just looks like it is supposed to be that color since it is so evenly colored.
It is a beautiful quilt - your work is wonderful.

Lots of quilters seem to have successful results with Dawn dishwasher detergent.
Beautiful quilt, Kitsie.

The only pink I see is the square with red flowers . If you hadn't said that there was bleeding, I wouldn't have thought anything was wrong. Your whites appear white to me. Don't dry it any more--heat will set it. Try vinegar or Dawn on the pink bleeds.

Its the 2nd picture, the white (supposed to be) with the polka dots. Just one other fabric, white with tiny red stars did the same thing. The whites are pink.
But I'll just leave it.

Thanks everyone. I will just leave it. You should see on the 2nd picture of the polka dot one close up that the background is pink. The whole quilt is supposed to have only various reds and white and off-white or ecru.
