OK ..I'm happily cutting away and I take a piece to the ironing end of my cutting table. I notice there is a new blue stain on the pad. After a few tries, I locate the offending fabric..my FAVORITE! I do wash all my fabrics (after a couple disasterous bleeding incidents), so I dont' come across this very often. Here is the dilemma...do I wash these pieces and try again? Do I DUMP this one fabric (its scrappy so not a real problem)? Do I keep going and just make sure to use a Color Catcher/Dye Magnet on this until there is no more color bleeding? How would you handle this?
PS before you let me CROW about lovely kite shapes..just know that I cut them for the wrong size feathered star FIRST! Anyone planning a blue radiant star from Marsha McCloskey's feathered star book in 12 inches? :::Grin:::: In the mean time I have plenty to cut/sew before I am ready for these shapes anyway....Back to Poirot!
