This is the back of the Blue Delft quilt. Someone gave me this panel years ago and I knew I'd never make a quilt with, I thought it fit the quilt theme perfectly.
This is the front of the Blue Delft quilt.
The bad news, notice the extra tint of blue near the flying geese units. Lesson learned, always always ALWAYS prewash batik fabrics. Here is a close up....the blue batik bled.
I'm going to wash the quilt and include a color catcher sheet. I'm really hoping that will solve this problem. This is suppose to be a gift, I know the recipient would love the quilt no matter what, but I hate the thought of giving something that I think of as damaged.
