I ordered some new fabric for my kitchen windows. I will make panels for the long windows. I wanted the shrinkage out of the length so I washed and dried it. I threw in a Shout Color Guard sheet and look at the purple piece laying on the fabric.
I knew it would bleed. I had no doubt. So I took a picture to tell everyone that fabric bleeds. It is a Henry Glass & Co. piece called Summer's End by Buggy Barn. I am sure it was $14.00 a yard, but I purchased it much cheaper.
I have heard the story over and over again my fabric doesn't bleed because I buy quilting shop fabric. This was quilting shop fabric and wasn't cheap. So rethink your thoughts or live on the wild side and hope it doesn't bleed. Chris
