    This is a typical Dresden Plate pattern. Possibility some of the fabrics may be from dresses, aprons, shirts. Can you tell if there is batting in the sandwich or a flannel sheet? One repair hint is to use something like bridal veil to protect the damaged areas by carefully stitching it over the area in question. It is not obvious but helps to protect.

    Love that dog. We had a Bassett ?German Shorthair that looked just like that. Nice quilt too!

    Lovely quilt and your "helper" looks like a real sweetie. In my opinion things like this are priceless....,$35.00 seems such a bargain. Hope all goes well with the cleaning and thanks for sharing with us.

    What a beautiful quilt. I hope that you can get the stains out, but even if you can't, it's still a beautiful quilt.
