Here is the Placid Curves QOV post-rinse and wash. In my January 3 post, I was worried because one of the fabrics in the quilt proved to be an excellent dye catcher. When I tested some strips, the dye catching fabric turned pink. However, this time the quilt had 4 long soaks in a large tub with Dawn dishwashing soap. The rinse water turned primarily blue, so the dye catching fabric became a very pale blue.

Happily, the dye catching fabric added a consistent dull blue hue that looks planned and appropriate. And I am extremely happy that the fabric didn't turn pink, which would have ruined the quilt.
