We always read or hear the horror stories of red bleeding, but blue? It looks like this little flower has a blue halo. It's crazy because...
...the same blue fabric, used in the flower below, was washed the same way, stitched the same way and did not bleed. I guess I should throw what's left of that fabric into the washer with some dark jeans and other navy fabrics and let it bleed away.
These flowers are on the primitive basket blocks made for Cheri Payne's Baskets of Plenty sew-along. I took them off the wall again today, arranged them on the floor, decided that several backgrounds were too light and sprayed walnut dye on them. When I rinsed them out, there was that blue bleeding onto the background. I guess that little round flower is just going to have a halo.
Have you had experience with blue fabrics bleeding?
