    I was not able to completely remove the color bleeds, but it is for my own bed, so I'll have to live with them.

    Oh my your work is beautiful! When I go into my sewing room to clean up sometimes it winds up a bigger mess (temporarily) than when I started, but I have never accidentally finished a quilt when planning to clean!!! I think you may need to pay me a visit.

    Beautiful work! Ditto, when I go up to clean my sewing room I somehow get distracted and start pulling more stuff out creating a bigger mess!
    Nobody is going to stand up at your funeral and say she had a really expensive sofa and great shoes Life is not about stuff.

    Both quilts are lovely. I don't see any color bleeding.

    For your memory quilt, did you buy inkjet fabric sheets, or did you prepare your own fabric. It looks like they printed nicely with good contrast.
