    I had some bleeding on the back of a quilt and was heartsick. A friend told me to soak it in Biz detergent. I did that and then washed the quilt in Biz again and the bleeding was completely gone. Yeah! Good luck with yours.

    rats. if it doesn't come out over time- you might think of tea dying it for a softer look. shame. i think it will continue to come out if not put in dryer.

    [quote=newestnana]Last night I finally finished my new grandson's Lakota Star Quilt (his mom is part Native American). I had machine-pieced and hand-quilted it. Washed it in very cold water, to remove the quilting lines I'd drawn...and the dye bled on the star points. Boooooo hooooooo :( I had prewashed and thought all the fabrics were safe. Thanks to this board, I learned that Synthrapol might get the bleed out, but I'm still pretty heartsick.[Awesome quilt love the colors great job.]

    Good suggestion and warning. Thanks!
    I had the same thing happen with a deep deep red bleeding into white. But the Color Catcher sheet worked like a dream. The brand that I used was Shout...just like the dryer sheet. Good Luck...let us know how it goes. Beautiful quilt though!
