Default Can you help??I can't get the pencil marks out of my finished quilt.

My friend used a pencil to mark the design in her quilt, and now the pencil mark won't come out. She used the very same pencil on every quilt she has ever made, which is many, with no problems. Can any one that has experienced this same problem, tell me what you did to get the marks out.

Pencil marks that won't come out...hmmm.I remember reading something here about someone who used a mixture of rubbing alcohol, water and Ivory soap. Didn't even have to rinse it because it dried. I'll try to look it up but I'm sure someone here will have the answer if I can't find it. Good luck

​I wrote down the recipe Gladys and will try it out on some samples to see how it works.
