I was sewing the Disappearing Four Patch together today when this happened: the batik cerise ran! I like to spritz a seam with some water before pressing with a dry iron. This poor stained block is now out of the quilt, along with the block to the left which created the stain. Two new blocks are up on the board for replacement.
Just a few more seams and the center of the quilt is finished. The plan is to use a very narrow band of purple as the first border, about 2" of a white on white for the second border, and then a binding of the same purple.
