Water soluble graphite and quilting

The safari quilt came out of the washer looking great!  Once again, the white marks were completely gone — not so with the graphite.  And…. once again, Fels Naptha to the rescue.

Water soluble graphite pencils from Fons & Porter did no better in disappearing during the wash than the Sewline Fabric Pencil in black. I did not try erasing the lines before washing the nap quilt, but I wish I had.  That will be the next test.

With both quilts, I used Quilt Care in a gentle wash on cold with a cold rinse.
