The sashing on my quilt is a purplish/pink batik and it needs to be cleaned. I attached a pic. What do you recommend?

Use a shout color catcher or maybe a couple of them in cold water on the gentle cycle.

Amma is right. Use more than one color catcher.

Yes I made it. My first quilt. I did not prewash fabric.

Your quilt is truly beautiful. Both the colors and design are a great combination.

As for washing it, go with what the "experts" have said. I am a newbie.

You could also take a wet white washcloth and go over the purple to see how stable the color is.
I don't know if I would trust a colorcatcher, have not had good luck with them.

I concur with the cold water.
