    Well, I got the double wedding ring quilt today. Pretty speedy delivery I'd say! There are several holes and discolorations in the quilt that did not show in the picture. She did send me some vintage fabric to finish one of the rings, but I'm not sure what I will do about the white. There had been straight pins in it, thus rusty spots. All in all it is a very old and pretty quilt. When I figure out how to post, I will do so.
    I also received a sweet note from the seller. It's not the end of the world and a good lesson learned. Thanks for all the comments and advise.

    Not too personal at all...I split the difference with her and paid $60.50 plus postage.

    I have used this product before without much luck. You might try searching for other rememdies through google. Hope you get it worked out okay!

    Here's another product: Grandma's Secret Spot Remover.

    It can be found at your local retail fabric chain stores. I have had success from some unknown source of spots that went throught the wash and the dryer. After several sessions of allowing the product to sit, then rinse, then sit on stain, then rinse, etc. The spot disappeared. Don't dry in the dryer until satisfied with the results. Let air dry before a regular wash and dry cycle.
