Hi everyone!!! I'm in desperate help for suggestions or advice.
My Mum recently made this GORGEOUS black/white/Red Log Cabin. She decided she wanted to hand quilt it in the white area. She started a marking a beautiful feather stitch design only to realize 3/4 of the way down the first long line that it was going off center. She wasn't happy with the results and so we decided to put the quilt top into a zippered laundry bag and machine wash it on a gentle cycle.
Well when we took it out of the machine, the zipper of the bag came undone and the quilt fell out of the bag. Luckily after much cutting of ravels on the back of the quilt and a good pressing job the quilt survived!!!! Unfortunately not all the markings came out. At the moment she is gritting her teeth and painstakingly using a sponge and some "Quilt Care" and water solution and lightly scrubbing it out. She is getting a bit disgruntled thinking it might not work.
Is there ANYONE out there who can give us some good ideas to help remove the remaining markings so she can remark it again?
The marking pencil she is using is a Fons and Porter Watersoluble All surface Pencil "black". We appreciate all help and suggestions!!!!
I am enclosing some photos of the issue.
