WOW: Washing The Blues

WOW = WIPs On Wednesday

There's nothing for it, it's time to wash my blues. I learnt my lesson with Lily Rose and the dreaded colour run disaster afternoon, so with my Oma's Blues I am taking no chances. Every fabric is getting stitched down next to white and tested as per my testing technique tutorial here. It's true I used to be somewhat relaxed about colour testing fabrics I trusted, but after my brush with potential ruination of a nearly completely quilt - I trust no fabrics! ALL must get tested.
Yes, this means it's full steam ahead for Oma's Blues and hopefully I'll have some real progress to blog about real soon. Remember, if you haven't joined us yet, all parts are still available for free download over in my Yahoo BOM Group. Oma's Blues is my current free BOM.

What's YOUR WOW?


  1. Better safe than sorry. I've not had much problem with colors running, except for one quilt and that's all it took. It's so frustrating to find out they run when it's all finished.

  2. I look forward to you starting your Oma's Blue :-)

  3. Esther, thank you for giving the opportunity to show their work. Try to choose a time and sew anything with you.

  4. I have never tested fabric.....even when I've bought it new!
    I need to keep this in mind.
