This is one of the blocks my Grandmother made over 35 years ago. It was found in her attic when we cleaned her house. My Grandmother was a hoarder.....so this block was buried under lots of other stuff. Its stained and the material she made it on is flimsy to say the least. I think it is muslin....that's what the lady at the fabric store thought too. So far what I've done is to place these blocks on a new piece of muslin and sew them on that. This one though is so stained. I've tried everything I thought was safe to wash it in and this does not come out. I'm wondering if it would look ok to just cut Sue out and machine applique her on a new block? Or should I just leave it alone and deal with the stain? For some reason photobucket is not working for me so this is on flickr and it won't do a picture for me.
