I basted this quilt few weeks ago, I tried to quilt it with a normal sewing foot and it wasn’t great. So, I waited to have enough money to buy a walking foot. When I did, I wanted to have a go at this quilt again but realised (to my horror) that I had rust stains!!!
What is surprising though, is that I have stains only on the white fabric (it is a bleached calico). As soon as I discovered this, I removed the safety pins and threw them away.
My question to you is: have you ever come across this problem? Do you know what to do?
My first instinct was to Google it and I found out that lemon and salt could remove rust stains. I’ve tried it last week-end and unfortunately it didn’t help.
If you have any other tips, please let me know. My colleague says: unpick it! What would you do?
