Default Help! I've ruined a customer quilt with marker!

Have a customer quilt that had a 15" empty block (light gray) in center and decided to follow the animal theme and quilt some there. Have a quilt pattern but could not easily see through the fabric even when I used the window as a light table. So used a Crayola UltraClean Marker in green to mark. Got finished quilting and sprayed with water as always (I've used the green one several times before with no problem) and it won't come out!

I soaked the quilt for about 45 min and it's not fading even. Saw another thread that poster had soaked with Color Catchers. Have DH picking them up now, but I can use Any other ideas, please!

Of course this is a customer that always waits until the last minute to get a quilt she needs to me, so I'm needing to fix or call her and tell her I've ruined her quilt and... Very soon! Help!

I mistakenly marked with a white board dry erase marker and got it out with Murphy’s Oil Sosp. Nothing else had worked. I used it full strength then spritzed with water and rubbed with a soft cloth once color was out I rinsed that spot more thoroughly with cool clear water. Good luck. I might add that it was done on my avatar which has since won a couple of awards.

I would be tempted to try hydrogen peroxide in a Q-tip. Use very sparingly to see if it works.

Oh, I can imagine how bad you must feel. If I were your customer, I'd understand and try to make you feel better about it. Before you do any of our suggestions, I think you should let her know and tell her that you are trying to fix it.

I would try a powdered oxygen bleach mixed with hydrogen peroxide. I used this with terrible old wine stains on white fabric Purificators (Church napkins used for Communion). It worked after I prayed a lot.

I would try Dawn. Hydrogen peroxide can be quite damaging to fabric, so that would be a last resort for me.

I just recently did a crayola quilt--you color with crayons and iron to set. In an area I pressed too long and left a scorch thru the paper towel. I used a paste of oxyclean & water on the scorch, let it sit, and rinsed. The scorch was removed and so was some of the 'set crayon' that I had to re-color. if the crayon was removed....give a try.

I'm so sorry for you. I have one other option - I just recently had to do this on one of my quilts. I was using my embroidery machine to do a design on a square and the machine jammed and messed up my embroidery. The stitching is so small and tight that there was no way I could unstitch it. I tried! I ended up cutting out the square (thankfully, mine was at the edge), redoing the square and sewing it back in. Yes, it was a HUGE pain in the behind to do this, but once it was all finished, the only place you could tell that it had been taken apart was in the back because you could see the joining of the square.

Good luck
