    Opened 3 more boxes today...more great finds. 12 blocks all embroidered, will be pretty put together. a few stains but I bet they will wash out. A ton of 3 1/2" squares, all organized and about 10 - 9 patch blocks put together. more yard goods. This is the first box that had a musty smell, so I'm going to wash these.

    I wouldn't wash all those pieces with the raw edges, you will have a MESS!! I bet if you just spread them out and spray with Febreeze and give them a little air, that musty smell will so away. St least enough that you can make them into tops.
