Red and White
Here is my finished red and white quilt! I copied the layout from a post by Prayerful Threads.
I’m really pleased with how my black and white binding turned out.
A word of warning to anyone who won the red and white D4P blocks and hasn’t yet washed them… they bleed! I know Sophie has warned us before to at least throw a color catcher in the wash with the quilt the first time you wash it, but did I listen? NOOOOOO! I didn’t listen. Am I sorry? YESSSS! I did some reading online and discovered that Dawn Ultra Dish Washing Liquid does a pretty good job of trapping dye. So I applied Dawn directly to the spots that bled and washed the quilt multiple times. (Just be sure you don’t use more than about 3 tablespoons in a load or you’ll have a lot of suds.) I did eventually get most of the red out.
