1  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Making red colorfast? on: March 07, 2009 08:33:07 AM
Okay so I have a red fabric I've used in the past and didn't prewash and it ended up bleeding big time  Tongue

Is there a way to make fabric colorfast in addition to prewashing? (I'm converted, I prewash now)  Like something I can add to the wash that's gonna keep the dye on the fabric?  I'm worried I just wash this red and it's still gonna bleed to some degree prewashed or not.

I'd like to use up the remnant, but otherwise guess it's going in the trash. 
2  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Native Star quilts on: February 23, 2009 05:25:38 PM
I've developed a little niche for myself making star quilts, originally it just started off as something I wanted to make for a boyfriend.  Then people started asking me to make them for new babies or relatives as gifts.  In the last year it's been a little side thing I do and I plan on making some to sell in May at the Alabama-Coushatta reservation.  (I'm Navajo and I used to work for the tribe, helps to know people  Wink )   They're really big with Natives in general and the more colorful the better as you can see.  If you've ever been to a powwow or seen some native dancers it's the same deal, everything is very colorful and eye-catching.  I'm applying to some Physical Therapist Assistant programs for fall 09 and keeping a job will be tough, so I'm hoping that my lil side business can cushion me through those thin times when I'm going to school.  Thanks for taking a peek!

This is first one I made and it's queen size, the rest that follow are all baby quilts.

This is my first post of my handiwork!  This first quilt I finished awhile back but I think out of everything I've made it's craftster worthy  Wink  I get so inspired by everything I see here everyone is talented and crafty in their own way.

I love how colorful it is and the pattern is very cheerful, it's also my favorite and all mine!  This is the first quilt I made just for me.


This cowboy themed quilt I just finished for a cousin who's having a baby.  I didn't use a pattern just kinda came up with something and I hope she likes it.
