Thanks for inviting me to join!
Here's my completed block 1. I can see red halos around the flowers and I'm surprised. I rinsed it out to remove markings before I pressed it, so that my be the problem. I've always just waited till the quilt was finished and tossed it in the machine without a problem. I'll try re-washing it and hope that works. Otherwise, I'll redo the block. The rest of my reds are in the washer with Retayne as I type.
Block 2 is about half done.
