There was nothing to do but wash the runner, still 1/4 of the way unquilted. I treated it with stain spray, Oxi Stain liquid, and Blue Dawn. I did manage to get the stains out. I tossed it into the washer on delicate and hung it to dry. The stains came out.
I pulled out an old iron, no steam this time, just Best Press and was able to iron it nice and flat and it actually ended up looking like it had never been wash. I was able to finish quilting my circles on it.
I have just purchased a new Rowenta Pro Master. I am reading the directions really carefully. Believe me the directions are lengthy and specific, since the silly thing ended up costing $80 and that was with a 20% off coupon I am going to follow these maintenance directions perfectly. Lesson learned.
It is all finished now, no brown spots and not looking the worse for the whole experience.
