Rainbow Charm Swap

I am taking part in a Rainbow Charm Swap and have picked out my fabrics and cut them up.

I was surprised it didn't take that long to cut up 16 charm squares in each colour.




There was some discussion on the Flickr group whether to wash or not.  I always wash my fabrics - I have had too many bad experiences with fabric shrinking and colours running.

As usual, I put a ColourCatcher in with my fabrics and this is what came out

On the left is a fresh ColourCatcher and on the right is what run out of the fabrics - I would much rather the colours run when I wash it before I use the fabric, than the colours run in a finished article ;-(

I would feel terrible if any fabric I gave someone caused a colour run in their finished article ;-(




Thank you for visiting my blog today - I hope you have a good day. 
Remember, any day doing something you love makes it a good day ;-)
