Bleeding fabric.

 Hi friends!
Beautiful day!
I made this yesterday and ironed it and it bleed.
 See you can see it good on this picture.
This last block has the same red in it.
So i guess i will be washing red fabric today!
Got an order from today so i will mostly replace that red with the reds in the picture above this last one.
I ordered 3 reds , those 3 reds should take care of that problem.  I will wash it any way because i wanted to use it in the border of  Michael's quilt.
Usually i Don't wash my fabric but this is the first i have had bleed when i ironed it.
When i made Gracelyn's quilt in April and washed it the purple that i got at Hancocks faded.  That's the only two times i have had any problem with my fabric.
Got that red in the washer right now.
Have a great sewing day friends.
Quilt happy

Does that mean you have to take out the white?

Have you tried washing that block with a Dye Catcher? It might come out. You never know when to pre-wash. It is a shame though. Such cute blocks!
