Quilt With Us

Hoping someone out there can help us with this problem.  My quilting friend made a butterfly quilt with Crayola crayons.  Hoping someone out there has tried this method.  I will post a couple of pictures so you can see what is happening.

Thanks Cindy.  I told my girlfriend that she should come over and read all the comments that I have received and bring her quilt with her and I will try my Grandma's secret spot remover on it.  She may decide to buy that book too, Cindy as she has really enjoyed doing this kind of quilt.

Hi Linda, so sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. The book is "Creative Quilts from your Crayon Box" by Terrie Kygar. It's a very good book with detailed instructions. I bought it a while back. You might check Amazon's site. CT doesn't have it listed here on their site any longer. Good luck.

Thanks Cindy.  It would help if we had some more instructions, I guess.  I would be interested to know the title and author.  Yes, Terry, I hope she can fix it too.  She was pretty discouraged when she noticed it on our quilting weekend.  I have some Grandma's Spot Remover so will lend it to her to try.   Ally, yes they are Crayola crayons - wax, and yes Carol Ann, she blotted it and she was under the impression too that it would set it so was very surprised that it ran.  Thanks for all your help and hopefully some of the solutions will work.  I will give her my Grandma's Spot Remover to try first.

There is a book that gives instructions for making quilts using crayons. Soon as I locate the title/author will let you know.

I know nothing about "crayon quilts", but I hope you can fix it.  Looks like you have some good ideas here!

You haven't washed it, correct?

Try Grandma's Spot Remover http://www.connectingthreads.com/Tools/Grandmas_Secret_Spot_Remover...

We use this on our quilts that we have sewn up for photography / in our catalog

Good luck!

Very pretty quilt - and, of course, I love the hand quilting on it.  I'm sorry it is giving you some problems.  Hopefully a solution will be found.

I would use resolve stain stick where it has bled and wash again in very cold water and add a cup of white vinegar or salt in with the load to prevent more bleeding.

Linda are those Crayola crayons are they like felt tip or wax?
If they are Crayola for fabric (felt tip).
My suggestion would be get a scrap fabric and crayon as you are doing for the quilt. Where you have the outline go round with aloe Vera gel (clear with no acohol) to stop the bleeding.
We on LOAQ use this method with our inktense blocks and pencils, we actually mix it with the pencils. It is worth a try.

Heartbreaking...I would suggest Retro Wash, but know nothing about this technique.
