    If it doesn't come out, you could tea dye it and you'd never know it happened. Sorry, I know it must be heartbreaking.

Anyway, it came right out with cold water.
    Blood comes out with your own saliva - something about the enzymes.

    Try WISK. You can get this in the laundry detergent aisle. Tide usually works for me. I use the Wisk for tough stains.

    Well here is the end to the story. I soaked it overnight with Oxyclean and it came out. However it did fade the quilt a bit but not drastically. I still had to put the rest of the binding on it and since the quilt had shrunk some I decided to wash the other strips of binding and sew them to the quilt while they both were wet so that any dryer shrinkage would wrinkle the same as the strips already on it. Sewing a wet quilt was an adventure I never thought I would have! Then I put it back on the longarm frame because I had planned on one more row of quilting right next to the binding so I still had that to do. I did that wet too so that that quilting would match when it dried. Then I threw it in the dryer, and it looked just fine when it was done. I don't usually wash the quilts I gift so I did tell the story to my sister so that she could explain to my neice why it was already washed. And my husband gets to stay! He's a keeper and it was an accident. He still feels really bad and I bet he never does it again!

    Great to hear you got the stain out and that all is well...even if it was an adventure. Now, give Hubs a big kiss for thinking of you to bring you beverage, but tell him next time to put it in a water bottle with a lid! :)

    That's what I would do. If it doesn't come out, then take it back, fix it and give it back as soon as possible. She will surely understand.

    I'm so glad the story has a happy ending! I can't imagine trying to sew / quilt something wet; you are a better woman than I am.

    Poor husband, I'm glad it all worked out for him, too. :)

    I'm so glad this ended well. Poor DH, his heart was in the right place. Bet he'll stand back far away from your quilts with a drink from now on :)

    Also, if you can't beat it .. join it. After the quilt is finished, put some diet coke in a spray bottle and spray the back, randomly, so that it matches the original stain. Let it set for awhile then wash the whole thing. You may have just stumbled on to something!! ;-)
    very creative great idea :thumbup:

    Call the mama and tell her about it, ask if she would mind waiting for a fresh one, then make a big goofy coupon to take to the shower, (wrapped to open) promising her a new quilt? IMHO. I am hopeless with stains. Sorry. :oops:

    As long as you have not put in the dryer, then try some cold water and rub with a bar of soap, then gently with your fingers, rub the spot let sit for awhile and then rinse.

    You might think I am crazy, but I try this for many a stain.

    I know a way to take blood out if you stick yourself. Roll up a small ball of thread, moisten it with your own saliva and dab the spot. It has something to do with your own blood and saliva. Won't work using someone elses saliva or on someone elses blood.

    Take a picture of the front and give it to her with an IOU. Just say technical difficulties interferred with you finishing it in time.
