Preserving Permanent Marker on Quilt Block
I used an acid free, waterproof, permanent marker to write in a quilt block. But when I went to spray starch it, the ink ran. It's already sewn into the quilt top. How do I keep it from running when it's washed? Please help.

The spray starch must have had alchohol or another solvent in it; washing in water based products should not harm it. You can test-wash a sample to be sure.

I tested it with plain water, did the same thing. I'm wondering if it's the sizing in the fabric. It's not prewashed. Since the ink was waterproof and premanent, I didn't think it would run.
