Monday Morning Design Wall 2/6/2012

Good Morning!!  Not much to show this week as I have been working on completing a hand quilting project and hopefully it will be done by next week.  I am working on another Baltimore Album block, putting in the stems!!  So much fun.

I would like to ask for help.  My son, in a moment of not thinking, set his Camel Back down on my new dining room chair and it leaked.  I now have a huge water stain on the chair and I have no idea what to do to get rid of it.   Any suggestions are welcome.  I have no idea what the make up of the fabric is as the table and chairs are "new to me" but the foam padding in polyester.   Some Internet sites say vinegar, others say more water.....some say detergent, some say no detergent.   HELP!

Oh, before I forget, check out the other design walls on Judy's blog.


  1. Your Baltimore block is looking great! So sorry about your chair -- I don't have any "tried and true" suggestions -- I hope something does! :)

  2. I think I made this block too - it looks very familiar anyhow, I have a red and green quilt that I have been making for awhile now, it is just waiting for the border.

  3. Your blocks is so neat, I'm sorry I don't have any ideas for getting the stain out of your chair, good luck!

  4. Alas, I don't have any upholstered chairs to give you some advice for yours. I would bet youo are now the queen of perfect circles. Love the block!

  5. Your block is lovely. For your chair, I would first use water with a soft cloth, then I'd go to Sew Clean. It is a natural cleaner and spot remover that I've used successfully with quilts from removing blood, ink, coffee and old age spots. It is by Bear Thread Designs. Just follow the directions on the bottle and your chair should be good as new.

  6. My husband was a carpet and upholstery cleaner for 25 years, and although without knowing the fabric content no guarantees can be made, he said to tell you to have it cleaned by a REPUTABLE cleaner... The only times he was able to successfully remove water rings from white or cream fabrics he had to clean it with a Haitian cotton cleaner. It is possible that once the whole surface has been wet cleaned the water mark will disappear. Hope it helps!

    1. Thank you so much...I will give a reputable cleaner a shot. Now to find one....
