Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
Here is the problem,
Grease from my machine got onto the quilt while I was quilting.
How can I fix this? I cna't remove it. Nothing I have tried worked.
So far this is what I have come up with.
Obviously, this is a quick pin to see if it works. And I would do it over the entire quilt. I don't know. Maybe a different color? What color? Or should I do something completely different?
What would you do?
Have you tried goof off, or goo gone??? I would try that - then launder the quilt...OR - how about embellishing with some sort of bug buttons or something over any leftover 'spots'?? Actually reminds me my my 'first' wedding dress..when I picked it up, there were pencil type marks all over....so they covered the marks with lace appliques! Good luck - it's very cute!!

try club soda, it works to take stains out of wedding gowns
I don't know if you have made a decision yet, but do try Carbona stain remover. They make little bottles specifically for different types of stains. My husband is a truck driver and that truck grease is not easy to get out. I use the Carbona for grease and oil. It works like a charm. I love the quilt and don't want to see you adding. Good Luck.
When I received my longarm training, the instructer gave me the following recipe to get out any oil stains:
1/4 Cup water, 3/4 C rubbing alcohol, and 7-8 drops Palmolive dish soap. Mix in small bowl and lightly dab the oil spot with a toothbrush dipped into the mixture.
