I have finished quilting it and I am now soaking it in Vintage Soak a product my LQS had. It has a few stains on it and I am hoping that some of them, if not all of the stains will come out. I will post a picture when I have finished washing it. It is kind of fragile so I am a little worried about it.

How are you going to dry it? I'm not too sure that I would put an old quilt into today's dryers.

I have a very gentle cycle on the dryer. I am going to put it in there for just a few minutes and then lay on a sheet on the floor in my quilting room. I have carpet in there so there shouldn't be any stains come through the sheet.
