So I have to ask. Was the color catcher pink? I plan to do the same thing but with blues. Since both are notorious bleeders and the rest is white, what is the best way to wash them. I thing you did good. Even though, it's a mess. Hand wash?

I used 2 color catchers and they are as red as the fabric! I also used Dawn dishwashing liquid as my "soap"--a couple of tablespoons. I checked the water during wash and rinse. As the rinse water was still pink I decided to wash again with Dawn. The second wash was when the zippers broke. The second rinse was almost clear so I felt the dye was set. i also included larger fabric pieces in the wash (close to FQ size)...not in the bags and they did not get too tangled up. It was the wof fabric cuts that suffered the worst. I had a large softball size of "strings" that were tossed. I will admit the bags were cheap (a package of three from the Dollar Tree) and a more reliable brand of bag might not cause a problem. I think it will be worth it to go through the wash cycle for your blues, toverly, but I would definitely use a better quality lingerie bag...check the zipper quality beforehand. Lesson learned, you get what you pay for.

LOL, I would have gone with the dollar tree ones too. I have several. I will definitely prewash this time. Looking forward to the project.

I'll in! I'll probably go scrappy and hopefully I can use up some of my strips. All my fabric has already been washed so don't have to deal with that at least.

I am having trouble finding the pattern. When I click on the link, it takes me to her site; found the pattern on page 6 but I click on it the pattern does not come up - only a bunch of stuff that refers to it but no pattern. Does someone have a different link or can tell me what I am doing wrong?

i have had the burgoyne surrounded on my 'wanna do' list since i first started quilting! ..but it's still not time yet. but even tho i'm not going to follow along, and i have several patterns including eb's i just had to go check out the link given as pattern source. that link took me to the home page ..fun site! on the list of things on right side of page, all in alphabetical order, you'll find the link to her burgoyne quilt-a-long from 2012 ....here it is

http://www.lynbrown.com/category/bur...rounded-quilt/

and here is link to pattern and construction directions ..

y'all have fun & i plan to peek in occasionaly and enjoy seeing your progress

oksewglad ..my red scrap pile is growing and this is one of the quilts i've thought about using them in. i wash my scraps too as most given by friends and some washed, some not. i don't use the laundry bags tho i bought some for that purpose. i use dawn and all the reds in supersize washer load of water. i also use color catchers ..for darks i use between 10-12 sheets. it really really catches all the stray dye. rinse twice even if first rinse clear. i also only hand agitate ..not machine agitate. this reduces amount of fraying threads and tangling of the longer strips of scraps. spin dry.

If you use the link on 1st post and look down towards the bottom on the right side there is a list look for Burgoyne Surrounded and click on name and it should take to the correct post to click on. Hope this helps.
