Introducing: Sumptuous Stars 80" x 80". (sorry these are iphone photos)
During the recarpeting of our entire upstairs in spring of 2014, I put this quilt along with lots of other things in a bathtub to get it all up off the floor and out of the way.
NEVER, I repeat NEVER put anything valuable in a bathtub besides people. Somehow it got a little damp and some color ran. I spot cleaned it with oxyclean but I had all the markings on it from the Crayola Markers so I couldn't really soak it.
Here is an after shot of that area and it seems to have come out. Not my finest stop in the machine quilting - oh well the other two look good.
Here are the products I used along with regular detergent. You MUST use safe all color bleach to remove the washable markers according to Crayola's instructions.
In my last post I forgot to mention that I like to use the Super Slider on my sewing surface. I keep it on all the time now. It helps the fabric move along and reduces shoulder fatigue.
It comes out really great - like this! I made 328 inches of bias for the edge of this baby. Easy Peasy.
After trying out several I thought this was an interesting binding fabric choice. What do you think?
Here the back where I used this fun Kaffe fabric. You can definitely see where the seam is on this one but I kind of like the way it looks.
Are you still here? - oh my this getting so long - sorry. Here is a fun shot from my staircase. It is really a big quilt.
Our golf group learned how to curl - always wanted to try it! Challenging and fun.
