The Pink Quilt Story
I always love pink....and this pink quilt is for my auntie. She hand pieced the quilt top several years ago and decided to have me finish it. She used a variety of blend cotton pink fabric for a single bed size quilt.
I added the white border by using a 100% American Cotton and hand quilted as usual. She requested for a pink checked fabric for backing.
Before handed over any quilt to it's owner, I am always clean and wash it so they will appear fresh and clean. Unfortunately this time, the quilt suffers colour bleeding from the pink fabric. I'm sooo frustrated after all the hard work :((
"An unusual fabric may be difficult to deal with, especially when it's the first time you handle it and and old cottons tend to bleed especially colour ones." So that's maybe one of the reason for the bleeding.
Already passed the the finished quilt to my auntie , deep down my heart I hope she's ' not blame me for the bleeding.
P/S : Still feeling blue
