So, I wrote about this UFO before. The black fabric was sort of falling apart. It was very fragile. I got lots of good advice on what to do.
So, I got the blocks and pieces out and decided that I would make a couple more blocks and I would try to gently quilt it.
Well, I could not sew the blocks together. The black fabric was too fragile. SO, I started to throw away all the black. Right about the time I was getting ready to throw the blocks in the trash, I decided to see how fragile a whole block was.
Crazy thing….they are fine. Strong as can be.
So, what is the difference? I stored the pieces in Ziploc bags (actual Ziploc Brand). It seems that the Ziploc bag affected the black fabric. Anyone else ever heard of that? The Batik fabric I had in the Ziplocs was fine. Only seemed to affect the black fabric.
Please let me know your thoughts or if anything crazy like that has ever happened to you.
I have a lot of stuff stored in Ziploc bags. Now I am scared.
