    Isn't this beautiful? It was wrapped around a piece of furniture someone delivered...wasn't their quilt - they had found it laying around somewhere...gorgeous hand quilting and signed...don't know who the artist is, but if she sees it here, she can know that this is one of my favorite finds...
    has a few rust stains - any advice as to how would I get those out without harming the fabric..I have washed and still there?

    Poor Beth!!! I wonder if she wonder's what happened to it?
    Maybe try some oxyclean? A paste of laundry soap and clorox II? It is a very cute quilt :D:D:D

    Wink gets rust out of porseln sp? and stainless steel, I don't know what it does to fabric. I have used fabric with it, just never notice. That is a lovely Qt. It's a shame to havebeen handled so rough. Theresse

    Wouldn't it be lovely if you could find it's home. A lovely gift like that from a Grandmother will be sorely missed.

    Try soaking it in BIZ detergent. Took out a grease stain on one of my quilts and took out some dye that bled on another. I love BIZ!

    No idea!! It's a shame that someone loved someone else so much to make a gorgeous quilt and have it treated in that manner.
    I have relatives I would never put that much time into a quilt for them because I do not think they appreciate it.

    What a treasure! Definitely post on lostquilt.com, someone did this earlier on this board and the original owner was found. Keep us posted. If you can't find the owner then you have a very gorgeous quilt that I know you'll give the love that it so rightly deserves!
