I hope this is in the right place, but I am in need of help quick. 

I am hand quilting a lap quilt.  It was basted with a basting gun and tacks.  This morning my one year old (who apparently is going to grow up to be something with very good aim) spilled my husband's orange juice down the back of my mostly white Christmas quilt.  I know, more fool me for working on something white with a one year old.  :)  I've got most of it out by running it under cold water and rolling it up in a towel, but there is still a faint shadow.  It is in an unquilted part of the quilt and I am afraid that if I try to do more I'm going to destroy the batting (warm and white). 

Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated!   Thanks!!

Try running some white vinegar on the stain area - I would mix it one for one - and just rinse it in... usually takes out most anything and doesn't bleach the area... try it on a sample first to make sure it works for you -

Another idea may be hydrogen peroxide with a mix of one part peroxide to 3 or 4  parts water. Test the fabric first but that is something I use in my regular white laundry instead of chlorine bleach.  It takes out most stains without hurting the fabric.  Hope it helps.

I never thought of hydrogen peroxide for laundry I'll have to remember this.
