I feel like I’ve been ( missing in action) again....it does seem like it’s been busy. Physical therapy has really been * intensifying * my sessions, speech wears out my brain and I’ve been trying to accomplish more at home- all positive steps. I’ve actually started making some gifts . I have blocks to catch up on here and ornaments.

i see the neurologist on the 23rd and am fairly sure we have reached a point where they are going to try to send me back to work- probably part time with some restrictions. Workmen’s comp is starting to complain. It’s been 9 months. 
I hope everyone is well and enjoying some outside time every day. I will try to be more ( present)

I've added the June ornament, but I haven't been getting a header for some time now so I can add a photo. You can see the ornament by clicking on the link.

She has the technique here.  It is hard to believe that you need to have scalding water to do this, but it is what gets the bleeding out.  Tub of water, half cup of Dawn, and hours of soaking and swishing.

Melanie, love the quilt.  It is such a nice remembrance for your pastor.

Beth I need to share your recipe for this.  I have a QOV quilt that needs to be washed so we can present.  Strong feeling it may run.  Was going to put in 4-5 color catchers in the washer.  Hope that helps.  Where did you find the instructions on how to do your process?

I used the Dawn trick when fabric bled.  I put Dawn in a tub of hot water, and I mean lots of Dawn according to the instructions, wish I could think of her name at moment.  Then I soaked the quilt with several color catchers which actually catch the colors in the water and not pull from quilt, over night - close to 24 hours according to the instructions - and the bleeding came out of the white.  It was a charity quilt and custom quilted.  I was so scared.  It worked though.  Now as for pen, I am not sure it will, but for fabric bleeds, it does.

Mary, great idea!  I had already gone over every block with fabric markers which did not run.  It will just be a matter of touching up if the bleeding colors come out.  I have sprayed with Dawn and waiting a bit more before rinsing.  

Linda, I did not think the color catchers would work and didn't want to wash it before getting most of the bleeding out.

Thank you all, Ladies, for the advise and the encouraging comments!  This will be something to add to the quilt story that is going with it.

Take lots of pictures of the signatures before doing anything...then you can forge them later.

Comment by Linda Koller on May 25, 2020 at 9:50pm

Have you tried Shout Color Catcher sheets? Of course, that might take out all the Sharpie signatures too. I've not used them before.

Here's the pieced quilt, before the red drink issue.
