    And you know, the quilt is so beautiful, your mom would want you to give it to her anyways, tell her what happened, and then take it back after christmas to clean it if you dont have time before

    PS the carb cleaner, you spray it on, and then rub the spot, and then wash
    K, so I gave my mom the quilt anyways, and explained what happened, and she doesn't care. We're going to try the hairspray thing, and we'll try the carb cleaner too, thanks for all the suggestions! I'll go through all of them untill I find something that works :)

    Good luck! I know how you feel, I gave my Dad an embroidered shirt that had a HOLE cut in it because I had to take out something. :( :(

    :twisted: :twisted: I would definitely try mineral spirits which are available at hardware stores, Lowes, Home Depot, paint departments in chain grocery stores, etc. and it is really cheap. I use it to remove paint from my hands, paint brushes, and paint spots on my clothes if necessary. I have never had a problem with it removing color or damaging my clothing, but you will have to wash it out well to remove the odor. Just try putting some on a piece of toweling and rubbing gently. If that doesn't work then I don't think anything will. If that stuff was not coming out of the can in a nice spray I would return it to the store because that is not what spray adhesives are supposed to do. You also should only use a light spray because a little goes a long way. Hope this helps.
