    I agree with QuiltnNan, applique to the rescue. You may have to add some applique to several blocks to balance the look, but do not give up on the quilt.

    Oh, no....did that 2 years ago. 3 stitches. LOL

    I'll keep working with it. With the LAQ, any large applique would be difficult. If I can't spot-clean it and reduce it, I may try a bit of embroidery over it.
    Thanks for all the input. Should have used a color catcher, but I didn't. I will for my next quilt that was also a block exchange and has bright blue near white.

    Try WINK stain remover. It is expensive and hard to find but it got grape juice out of my daughters quilt- even after it was dried.

    I highly recommend the Shout Color Catchers! I had a red/white table runner that was a mess! Re washed with 3 color catchers not a spot of red on the white!!
    I am truly Blessed by the Best!!

    Synthrapol should remove the bleed even if it has dried. Most dyes used commercially these days are set chemically, not by heat. Synthrapol does require lots of hot water, and you might have to use it several times, but I have seen it work to remove bleeds. Just be aware that domestic front loaders do not use enough water; you really need either a domestic top-loader or a laundromat front-loader to get enough water and the water needs to be HOT.

    I'd soak just the offending area in Oxiclean and then wash it with Color Catchers.

    I once had a red blouse bleed onto other laundry. Liquid Clorox 2 used as a pre-treatment removed it. Could be worth a try.

    Just saw a product in the supermarket the other day that seemed to be for this problem specifically. I didn't take note of the name but will check it out over the weekend.

    If you haven't dried it, wash in warm water, detergent and ammonia.
