    It was good of you to rescue it! It looks old and probably took someone a lot of time and care to make. I hope it washes up nicely.

    I have picked up many stained pieces like this, bring home and wash. I cut off the hand done section and put it in the middle of a square of crazy quilt pieces, makes a wonderful quilt and reminds you some lady probably spent hours working on this.
