It's about finding passion ... signaled by a lack of procrastination
Shiner was our first English Setter who taught me the value of "stopping to smell the roses" ... or in her case swimming after a duck, chasing a worn-out frisbee, or hunting down the RIGHT stick thrown in the woods.
We should all enjoy life as much as Shiner did ... so I choose to look through Shiner's View ...

Lesson to be learned
So here's what happened ... while I used the Color Catcher, the blue and white fabric in the center of the following star was also a magnet for the loose red dye in the wash (kind of its own 'color catcher').
In the following photo ... you can see how the material in the center has turned pink ... I have also laid a piece of unwashed fabric below the star, which really reflects what happened. The background to the star points has also turned somewhat pink. Though not quite as much as the center.
After the first wash ... there was some pink extending beyond the star and into the white sashing. That seems to have come out with the 2nd wash.
I am not thrilled with the 'pink' stars, but agree with John, that, "if you didn't know"...
What are your thoughts?
I will try to get some overall photos of the quilt this week to share ... will reserve final judgement for a day or two.
