I visited Daughter #3 last week. On the way home, I stopped at several antique malls. In the last one, I found this beauty needing rescue for a mere $35.
She isn’t perfect. She came with some yellow stains. Something must have happened when it was folded as most were symmetrical.
This one looked like a rusty stain.
I soaked it in my bath tub with a bit of Dawn dish soap and a product called Restoration by Engleside Products (available on Amazon). The fabric and stitching seemed very strong, so after a good tub rinse, I ran it through a gentle cycle in my washer and dryer. It looks so much brighter and the stains are mostly gone.
This is the rust stain now.
And this was the worst yellow stain.
I love this quilt! The colors, the four block setting, the simple appliqué, the scalloped edge. Beautiful!
Have a wonderful day!
