MARKED TO SOON

Well I marked some of the quilt as I was working on it not realizing that I would be getting it so wrinkled while I did the embroidery.  That is leaving it where it needs to be ironed.  Soooo  I sprayed out all the blue I could find but I still didn't feel good about it so I put the top in the washing machine on Gentle and rinsed it out.  So far so good.  It is on the table drying because I wasn't sure about putting it in the dryer.  I pray all the blue marker is out because after I embroider a few more names I will need to iron the top.  THEN I can mark it.  I just jumped the gun.  But I have to admit I'm very afraid to iron where I had the blue marker.  I have tested it on some of the cream clothe that I had left over and all went fine so I'm hoping all is well.  Oh I dare not mess this up or I will be so upset.  Oh why didn't I realize I would need to iron before I started marking!  UGH!

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE LET IT GO WELL.

  1. As long as you have used enough water, so not spraying but a good soak, you should be fine. If you do not trust the fabric, take a scrap, mark it like you have never done before, and give it the same soak you will give your quilt. And then check out how that scrap works out after ironing. That could give some clearity. Trust your steps, and if you don't, take baby steps!
