Ever since we moved I have not been able to locate the quilt, until yesterday when the children crawled under the basement stairs and discovered a garbage bag.
You guessed it, it contained the missing quilt. Only now it doesn't look very nice. The nine patches are still fine, but the light blue fill in squares are awful. They all changed color where they had been quilted.
I tried treating it and washed it in cold water, but it still came out looking like this:
Now I'm trying to decide between my options. Do I.........
- Store it in the attic, never to be used again.
- Simply burn it.
- Painstakingly take it apart and salvage the nine patches and recreate the quilt with new fabric.
Or does someone have a solution to get the awful stains out?
