Thanks to All!

See, I knew you were all still out there! I did set the red with vinegar before I washed it the first time (before cutting and piecing) and that has always worked for me in the past. I've hand quilted it, though, and I just don't want to take any chances. So, I will use synthrapol and the dye catchers you've mentioned and I'll let you all know how it comes out. (I have one more row to quilt and then the binding.)

    I can second the advice not to let it sit in water too long. I had a bad experience a few months ago but with the help of some of the other BBers I was able to get 99% of the bleeding out using Biz. I had let my quilts soak in the bathtub for too long along with the dye magnet sheets and apparently that is not a good combination! Good luck!! NancyH
