Finally finished quilting True Evening Star (the June 2014 mystery).  It's made of flannel.  Washed it to remove pink chalk marks but didn't use color save.  Now the yellow is grungy.  Think color save now would help???

Sandy,
I cant tell any grunginess with the photo, but it is a beautiful quilt. I love the 3d aspect
Of the design!
I have used a bucket of biz or 20 mule team on heirloom stuff that has yellowed with great results.
Would it work for this?
It is a striking quilt 😊😊

Sandy, the quilt is very striking!! I'm sure your nephew would love it!! Even if the yellow isn't as bright as you know it once was....tell him that's the look you were going for!!!

Very nice, Sandy! I'm sure it looks worse to your quilter's eye than it would to anyone else. Your nephew will treasure it because you made it for him.

Looks wonderful to me. I've used color catchers, Synthrapol and Retayne 'after the fact' and they have worked for me. toss one in and give it a try
