    I agree that your embroidery is just beautiful. I have found that sometimes just dampening the fabric and let it dry in the sun for a few hours can really help fade stains. I don't think this short amount of time would affect the embroidery. It's worth a try.

    I am so sorry that this has happened to you. I would simply give the person the gift, they probably won't even notice a thing. You did such a fantastic job, makes me wonder how anyone would notice!

    Try hairspray. I spray and rub it into ink marks and then wash it. Always comes right out.

    Time to get scientific. I have plenty of fabric so I'll make a new sandwich, mark it up and do FMQ on it as before. When I am finished, I will cut the sandwich into a number of pieces and test the following

    Agent
    Oxyclean Soak in Oxyclean and cold water
    TideTo Go
    Mr Clean Magic Eraser
    Marking pencil Removal
    Restoration
    Milk
    White Eraser
    Clorax Stain Buster and Color Booster
    Rubbing Alcohol/DW soap/water 6 TBSP isopropyl alcohol + 2 TBSP water + 2-3 drops liquid DW soap
    Synthrapol
    H2O2 plus Dawn 2 parts hydrogen peroxide to 1 part Dawn. Use soft toothbrush

    Will post the results so we can all learn something (hopefully). yesterday, I bought all the ingredients, Oxyclean, Tide to Go, Clorox, alcohol, hydrogen peroxide, etc. The cashier asked me if I was doing some serious laundry!!
    Anxiously awaiting your results!

    Boy you have a lot of experimenting to do. Are you starting to feel like a mad scientist? This is such a drag that the faint lines have remained. I'm sure your bound to fix it. You know we don't see many ribbon embroidered quilts on this sight would it be possible for you to post a picture of the whole quilt? It looks so beautiful.
