help, my quilt got wet!

nancylee02 | Posted in Quilting and Home Decor on

When we moved one box happen to get some water on it when a pipe burst in the basement, of course it was the box with the only quilt my grandmother and I made together. The red fabric ran onto the other fabric colors (blue and white). Does anyone know how to get the red out without ruining the other colors?

    Hi Nancy...I had this link [at bottom here] in my favorites - the sixth question down talks about what to do - I pasted it below.  There is an email link on this site if you want to ask a question directly.  This is an Amish-type webpage...very informative.  Good luck.

     

    What should I do if dyes bleed into lighter fabrics in an already quilted piece?

    Don't panic. Running dyes do not usually setup in the fibers. Some spot remover applied to the bleed will nearly always remove the dye residue. If you don't have any commercial spot remover available, substitute hydrogen peroxide, full strength, IF the stains are in white or off white fabrics.
