Well, I tried the blue Chaco Liner Pen on a scrap piece of fabric and it washed right out.

Then after I used it on the quilt, quilted, and then washed the quilt, some of the blue is still there. I really think it stained or dyed my white quilting thread blue. It's not too bad but I can tell it's there.

I tried shout but that didn't get it all. I read on a blog (can't remember whose) to use green dish detergent mixed with something.  Unfortunately, I can't remember what that something was. So tomorrow I am going to try green dish soap. I'll let you know how it goes.

Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting!


  1. Ack sorry about that Vivian! That's been my experience with the blue Chaco liner as well... LOVE the white, but not the blue.

  2. Ugh. So sorry, Vivian. Thanks for the warning! :)

  3. Thanks for the warning. How disappointing for you! Hope you can get it out.

  4. Try Oxiclean, I used that when a batik bled on to my white background fabric. Worked well.

  5. I am so sorry, Vivian. I'll be curious if it'll wash out after more washings.

  6. hope you get it out. I have heard of different blue and yellow chalks not always coming out but thought it was a pencil kind.

  7. Yikes! Sorry to hear that. My favorite is till the washable fabric marker. I tried the pounce - wasn't too impressed with it.
