    Use color catchers or Retayne to prevent color runs. Your quilt is absolutely great! Love its shaded feature. Thanks for sharing.

    The good news is - you're the pilot!

    It is just beautiful. Love the design! You did beautiful work. Wash it with Synthropol to prevent any bleeding from coloring the white... and do not use a High efficeincy ( low water) washer! If there is a bleeder .. using a low water washer will make a concentrated solution of the dye that is shed.

    What a great quilt. That watercolor is so different forming the star. So different and so wonderful. I can see lovely feathers quilted in that star.

    Wow, I love it! It just fills my soul and heart with joy. Possesses every color imaginable and will look fabulous anywhere. Will you be entering it in quilting shows? I see a Blue Ribbon in your future if you do!

    I'd be glad to help, if I can. This was my first attempt, and probably breaks a pile of rules. I will say that life would have been much easier if my camera would take black & white photos (so I didn't have to keep uploading them to look at the colour values)
