|Suck it, Cancer #Deux|
This was a commissioned quilt for my friend Amanda, who requested a red color way. I found a bundle, and we both loved the butterflies right away.
I tried to sneak in the one lone butterfly, flying different than the rest. The rebel butterfly. ♥
I love how after I washed this, my label got nice and chubby. Love it. ♥
BTW - I want to give a huge, high-five-ing fist pumping 'Shout Out' to Shout Color Catchers! (see what I did there?) ;)
After crossing my fingers, taking a deep breath, I plunged this very RED quilt into cold water with TWO color catchers. When the cycle finished, more deep breathes and prayers said, washer opened and Voila! My whites stayed pristine and the reds stayed bright and lovely.
There is never a need to worry with color catchers. I think they are on my top 5 list of things of quilter-must-haves. Funny thing, I don't use them for regular laundry. They are tucked in the back, secretly waiting for a quilt washing. No one here knows about them.....and it will stay that way. ;) Again, Shhhhhhh.
Today's post is brought to you by the color Red. ♥
