Love the colors together. So very HIP :-)
I will try and fix any problems I can or help in anyway I can. But on that said. I recently had a problem with some new chenille that I had put in one of my lots. I had a customer wash her chenille after she made the quilt. She was so upset that this happened and wanted me to take part of the blame for it happening, because the hot pink ran onto the white fabric. I send information with any fabric that I think might bleed. I give specific directions on how to wash your quilt. I am sure if you follow the instructions I have laid out in the note you should not have any problems, but with that I must say, if this happens to you and you try and take the fabric back to the fabric store they will tell you they are not responsible when a piece of fabric doesn't wash right, neither can I take responsibility for what happens when you wash your finished item; everyone uses different detergents, settings, etc. when washing their items. I suggest washing instructions with bright dark and bold fabrics. Finished product should be washed in cold water with the tub at the highest setting. Then take and put at least 3 or 4 Shout Color Catchers in the tub with your item and use only mild detergent. If you have a larger quilt then a baby quilt or lap take it to the laundry mat and wash it in one of the large tubs, with more color catchers. The color catchers work on the principal that they will have alot of water to move the dye onto the catcher. Remember these color families tend to bleed or run. Black, Dark Brown, Dark Green, Royal Blues, Oranges and Reds.... If you think at all something is going to happen when you wash it, be on the safe side and take it to the cleaners and have them do it.
Again thanks so much for your purchase and Happy Sewing!!!
I have tons of chenille so even if you don't see a color or combo just convo and I will see what I can do. I will be happy to put together the finishing material for your diy kit. Please convo me if you need or want anything. I can usually help you out. Lynn Hodges teelady

I am what they call a chenilleaholic. Love the stuff and it makes such cool quilts. I have also used them to make decoupage jeans. I often do embroidery and applique squares to go with my chenille diy quilt kits. But that doesn't mean that you can't use my chenille lots for other things like handbags, rag purses let your imagination run wild.

Just a note my chenille lots contain a lot of high quality pricey chenille (I don't add fillers what some call a junk chenille) this is why sometimes my lots are a little higher priced. I use only name brand chenille, like Hofmann (great daisy star and retro patterns mostly white on a color), Cabin Crafts by Martex (squiggles, ripples, and great uncut needltufts), and the ever so popular Morgan Jones (rosebuds, silver lurex popcorn's and this manufacturer makes the best popcorn's and buttonholes around), the last of the great Chenille Bedspread manufacturers is Bates, they also have great woven bedspreads.
This is long, but I must go into this in order to explain to you how I wash my items. This is not fail safe and does not guarantee how your product will come out. People use different detergent, and water settings when washing their items. Sorry, but on that note I can't be responsible for the outcome. I have had only two complaints on items bleeding. I did a custom order for a lady that had many many different color squares in her order. The person sewing the quilt for her decided to wash it and did not wash according to directions and some of the darks bled. Because of that left negative feedback saying that some of my squares had been dyed. (they weren't by me). I will tell you if any of my fabric or squares is dyed by me. If I think any of your fabrics might bleed then I will put the directions for washing guidelines, and a shout color catcher in your order. They are great! used to collect the color displaced in the water from the bleed, and if you wash properly. (Cold wash, a Non chlorine soap no oxyclean or non-chlorine bleach substitute; even some detergents are to harsh for fabric, Tide being one of them. Even if you are washing a baby quilt make sure you fill the washing tub to the highest level, this is how the color catchers work. They will not work well with a small amount of water.) I have never had a problem if the items are washed in this way. But on that note I can't be responsible on how you wash your item nor will any other fabric store. People wash things with different detergents and settings and I can't be responsible for how it turns out.
I strive for customer service and don't want anyone to be unhappy, but some people you just can't please. So please follow washing instructions that you receive with your order and you shouldn't have any problems.
