Big E was over the other day and I decided to start training him to be my assistant. Isn’t he just the cutest three year old?
He’s holding my little bow tie quilt before I washed it. See that rust stain towards the bottom? I wanted to try to remove that.
When it was time to take photos of the back, E decided he was more interested in the quilt than in taking photos. Smart little man!
I just can’t get enough of this sweet boy! Anyway, here are photos after washing. The stain isn’t completely gone, but it is much better. I used Restoration by Engleside Industries and a bit of Dawn dish detergent and washed it in the sink.
This vintage backing seems a couple decades newer than the top, but I’m glad to have found a place for this funky piece of vintage fabric.
It’s perfect on my little doll bed.
You can’t always square up vintage tops and this is no exception. I’m totally fine with these little quirks.
I had never really planned to finish this little bit of vintage patchwork, but I’m glad I did. It was a quick, fun little hand project.
Have a great day!
