I recently discovered 2 quilt tops in a box of stuff from a relative; eveyone knows I quilt, so I usually get anything no one else wants that has fabric in it...most of the time, that's a good thing! I found 2 scrappy quilt tops, both hand pieced. Both tops were very yellowed, but not necessarily stained, so I tried washing them in the sink just gently squeezing them using some gentle detergent. The water was brown! I think maybe it might be nicotine, but can't be sure, there was very little odor. Anyway, most of what ever was yellowing came out. One is just a scrap block quilt, but the other has a pattern I need help identifying, can anyone help me?
