Two of the quilts are grandmothers flower garden tops only. I am going to have to learn how to complete these quilts, but should I wash them first or quilt them first. They have been stored for many years and really need to be cleaned. I am going to hand wash in the bath tub but don't know if I should try that before they are stabalized with the quilting. What do you think?
This auction was SOOOO much fun. I bought 8 quilts ranging from $10.00 for what they called a cutter quilt (which I will never cut into!!!) to $65.00 for a full size double wedding ring with purple in the middle and no damage anywhere. One is a Sunbonnet Sue that is well loved. I think I will put a new binding on it and restitch the buttonhole stitching where it is needed and then let my grand grandson use it to play on the floor.
