    I recently discovered that a Tide-to-Go stick removed No.2 lead pencil marking on a white quilt square. Might be a bit tedious for a whole top but can't hurt to test it on your particular fabric. Lots of good suggestions here so far too. Good luck!

    Try using Dawn dishwahing liquid or Oxiclean with your soap.

    Don't know if it would work on the quilt, but when I was a child and got permant ink on my clothes, my Mother would soak them in milk and it took it out every time. It was raw milk.

    I will run out and get some oxyclean for next time. What an ordeal! I scrubbed it threes times - finally with bleach and it lightened but you can still see the marks so I'll just have to embroider some vines on it. Can't subject it to any more washing or I'll destroy the silk ribbon. For picture, see posting above "Washable graphite pencil...Update"

    Beautiful work!

    When I had trouble removing quilt lines, someone suggested the Mr. Clean's Magic Eraser. It did help. It is worth a try but try it on a scrap first.

    Try this 6 TBS rubbing alcohol, 2 TBS water, 2 or 3 drops of clear dish washing soap. Put a little on the tip of a wash cloth and rub the pencil mark if it doesn't come right off try it with a little brush (I use an old toothbrush)

    Good, you tested with your fabric and the way that you were going to handle your fabric. Everyone should do that for every project -- especially if you should happen to add extra chemicals (starch, etc) into the mix.

    The following BLOG entry, discusses one case in which FriXion ink would NOT come out.

    As others have said, always test first so that there are no surprises.

    I am always so afraid of marking the top with anything other than chalk and sometimes even that scares me.
    I will be anxious to hear how this all works out.

    I saw from your possible address that you could be in a hot climate.I live in Arizona and I have found that these washable pens will set rather firmly if left in a hot car . So if I am travelling by car I take it with me when I leave the air conditioned car.THis has saved me many a headache.

    I have successfully used 2 parts of hydrogen peroxide to 1 part Dawn dishwashing detergent to remove marks from pens. I use a soft toothbrush to apply.

    I'm so sorry this happened! How heart-breaking, especially since it is a gift for your friend. I hope some (at least one) of the suggestions work!

    I use a old tooth brush to scrub the lines off with warm water and use oxyclean Laundry soap.
