    Here are a couple of lap quilts I finished for my nieces. I will be giving them for Christmas. I usually prewash my fabrics but this time I didn't wash until they were finished. I used the color catchers but one has a little spot where the fabric bled. I didn't see it until it came out of the dryer. Any suggestions on how to get it out or is it impossible?

    The one that happened to me was a hand dyed dark blue and it bled onto white. Awesome did the trick, and Yes I had dried it in the dryer.

    I have the Awesome by my washer & spray tea stains (I have a slight shake or tremor with age) or food stains & they come right out. I also use Generic Oxyclean in with my wash for whites when I'm not using Clorox.

    They are both adorable!!! I don't prewash unless it is a dark color.
    Right now I am prewashing a red.
    I use vinegar or salt to help set the colors. And I always use a color catcher.

    I keep hearing about Awesome- where can I find it?? I love working with red but never do b/c of the nightmares I've had with it.

    The pattern is from Curl-Up Quilts by Becky Goldsmith and Linda Jenkins. I bought it as a kit that came with the book and the fabric when I was at a quilt retreat in Hillman, MI.
