Emergency room triage nurses needed STAT

Recommended Posts

Ok I’m being overly dramatic. I dabbled dampened paper towel of water on small area to close up some quilting stitches I ripped out ( done this many times- great results and never problems) but this time loose pink dye came out and bled. About 4” size area. What’s the easiest solution to get this out? I don’t want to wash entire quilt. Can I just work this small area? Advice and solutions to get dye out? Here’s photos of the finished quilt. After quilting blocks I decided to quilt flowers inside and then got a wild hair and decided to paint all of the flowers using Tsukineko fabric pens... had a blast—Fun project!

Can't think of anything other than trying a laundry stain remover (maybe a bit of dissolved oxyclean?) and a very soft tooth brush.  Beautiful quilt, quilting and painting.

Shana, remember this article by Vicki Welsch. https://www.colorwaysbyvicki.com/save-my-bleeding-quilt.html.

Lisa E and I were just talking about this. She just had the same problem. Your quilt is stunning and I llove, love love your flowers! Basket quilts are one of my favorites. Keep us posted.

Your quilt and quilting are beautiful!

I remember someone having a problem with and used synthropol.  I did a search and it happened to Vicki M., and it was a crayon colored quilt, so don’t know if it will help you.   Here’s the link. Click on the date.

Great advice from all of you! I appreciate the link to prior situation. Going to get some synthrapol.

PS thank you for the kind words on the flower basket quilt!!!

Shana, can't see your bleed in the pictures, and I don't have any advice for that, but looks like the others has solved it for you.  I just wanted to say how very beautiful your quilt is.  I love it and the quilting you did is beautiful also.   Wish you lots of luck on getting out the stains.

Beautiful quilt. I love how you quilted and then painted the flowers in the baskets. Great job.

A good friend will come and bail you out of jail, but a best friend will be sitting next to you saying, 'Dang, that was fun'!

2017 Blissed Lenni and loving it!
