Quilt Washing

Janelle that sounds correct to me. I think it would be wise to throw in a Shout Color Catcher or two. I also find it wise to never leave the quilt in the washer when it is finished. Get it right out and check it before throwing it in to the dryer. I feel the bleeding, etc. happens when it is allowed to remain wet. Also, worth a mention Harriet Hargrave's book recommends washing in ivory dish soap with no additives. I do this, but must admit I have yet to wash a two color quilt where one of the colors is white and the other bright. I will need to in the future, so let us know what you did and how it turned out.
