In preparation of my quilt borders, I needed to order extra fabric. It arrived promptly from the Holly and Ivy Etsy shop.
Prior to anxiously cutting into the fabric, I realized that I had to delay one day by prewashing / soaking the rusty burgandy Moda fabric (the good stuff). Gosh, am I glad I did!
|First soak in lukewarm water and dye-free All (small amount)|
|Second soak in very warm water and Synthrapol SP
(a textile detergent)
|Last, but not least, third soak in cold water and white vinegar|
