I've rarely used batiks due to their cost, but I was searching for a rose color, super hard to find right now. I see reds, I see pinks of all shades, I see burgundy, I see barn red, but hardly any I'd call rose. Anyway, the closet that Hobby Lobby had was a batik, so I got 1/4 yard to use in the home stretch of this log cabin quilt, since I was running out of my rose tones. I put it in a bowl of hot water and soaked and squeezed, and soaked and squeezed, added soap, soaked and squeezed ten more times and the water still has pink in it. Since this quilt is in teal and rose but has some lighter fabrics with off white and beige in addition to the main colors, I don't want to put this in a quilt if I can't set the dye. I've heard of a product called Retayne, but it's expensive and I've spent a lot on this already, haven't even gotten the batting for it yet. They say vinegar will not set dyes in batiks. So, is there anything else I can do to set the dye in this batik or should I just save it to use with darker colors where some minor bleeding won't show up?
