I've inherited some blocks, with which I am making a quilt.
But I just figured out that the original owner did not prewash her
fabrics, and there are blues, reds and browns in those blocks.
Normally I prewash fabric with Retayne. I think there is a product I
could buy that when added to the wash makes sure that none of the excess
dye stays on the quilt, but I don't remember the name [sigh!]. Does
And are there any other suggestions for washing this quilt the first
[and maybe more] times?
It will go to a child in hospital, so must be washable.
