I recently purchased an appliqued quilt which is beautiful and brought it home. It still had the quilting lines on it. I washed it in cold water and the lines remained. I washed it in quilt soap which I purchased at a LQS and the lines remained. Why won't the lines come out? Is there anything else I can do to get them out short of soaking in bleach. I don't want to ruin the rest of the quilt but I can't use it with these lines running all over the place. I thought these lines were supposed to just wash out. What happened?
Your help is appreciated.
