AIDS fundraiser: red cross block quilt

                                                                         the quilt back

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
I am so happy to let you know the quilt came out great.  The auction is this weekend, I'll let you know how much we raised!
finished about 62x90.
so hopefully appealing as a twin size bed quilt or/ and comfy cozy couch quilt!

oh...I washed the quilt with FIVE Shout Color Catchers...does this make anyone else nervous??  I didn't find any bleeding issues on the quilt...

Jenny, it's beautiful! I've washed with Shout color catchers lots of times, and they always seem to come out like that. I wouldn't be nervous.

I spy all 3 of my blocks :)

I'm glad the dye grabbers worked! I would just include instructions with the quilt to wash separately and use dye grabbers just like you did for the first couple of washes.

great job!
