    I feel that gently washing it with a cup of vinegar added and then drying it on low heat should help. At least she did give you a break on the price, however, I know you are frustrated and I hope it turns out well for you.

    Washing it or at least spraying the section with clean water and then tumbling gently in the dryer should remove the holes where the stitches were removed. This has worked for me numerous times.

    Such good suggestions! In heirloom sewing I know you always want to use natural fiber fabric with wing tip needles -- doing that will ensure the holes remain open in your decorative stitches. Nice to know that cotton also heals itself!

    I would wash/dry it before giving it to the group anyway - I have a dog and even if my quilt doesn't hit the floor during the process of making it, I am sure it has some residual doggie odor, etc. so I always wash quilts before giving them away.
