I just received a question/comment from a reader asking if the blue marking pen could be washed out of the silk. Yes, definitely! When my quilts are completed I fold them "accordian" style and place them in my washing machine "cinnamon roll" style. I fill the tub with CLEAR COLD WATER...I do NOT add soap to this initial rinse. I let the quilt soak for about 10 minutes or so and then spin out and then I air dry it. If you add a soap or additive to the initial rinse water it may have a chemical reaction with the blue marking pen and may leave brown lines and blotches on your quilt!
If you have questions you would like me to answer directly to you, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. When you leave a comment it doesn't allow me to reply back to you and I don't want to leave you hanging! Thank you, Cindy
