After many distractions, it is finally done. Total hours? Somewhere upward of 400 over 16 months.
I first washed the quilt in cold with 2 Shout brand Color Catchers (can you say paranoid?) the result was the 2 slightly pink sheets. Center is a new Color Catcher. Then, just to be sure, I washed it in hot w/ 2 new Color Catchers. Interestingly, it was the blue that bled. Hmmm. Who knew?
