Thank you Sarah (and everyone who seconded her suggestion yesterday) for mentioning Color Catchers. They did the trick! I washed the quilt twice, and each time got up a little more pink. There are still a few seams that have a tiny bit of dye in the stitches, but you really have to go looking for it. The worst-offending areas are much better now.
So thank you, everyone, for your help yesterday! Sometimes I don’t know what I’d do without friends on the internet 🙂
I’m excited to box up this quilt and send it on its way – hoping it spreads a bit of warmth, security and cheer to a little kid who may need some of that…
This is shaping up to be a busy couple of days. In case I don’t make it back here for a while, have a terrific weekend, everyone!
