So did all of these fabrics eventually stop bleeding?

Are all of them going to be usable in your kit?

yes they did stop.  Actually they only took 3 tries in the soak, not bad.  The red ones for Marion's quilt took 6.

I know exactly what you mean. I soak all dark purples, reds and blues in super hot water before I wash them.  I had a top I bought that had dark blues and Reds and was of a flimsy gauge type fabric.   This was after the third fresh water rinse.  I think it will be a hand wash item or in washer by itself or with other dark colors.

Strangely enough, yes, It's gauzy Red/White/Blue patriotic top and thankfully the white remained white.
