    thats what I do. It looks like a quilt I got back from my daughter as far as the brown spots are concerned. It was from laying in a cedar chest even after I told her to wrap it . She didn't . I had made a sunbonnet sue for my GD with vintage fabrics and neither of them liked it so it went in the cedar chest. Don't know what I am going to do with it now.

    Thourghly wet the quilt in warm water. Lay it flat on a table outside in the sun and take a bar of Sunlight Laundry soap and very gently rub the fabric with the soap. Leave it out in the sun. Dip into a pail of warm water and redo with soap again. Leave in the sun again. You may have to do this a few times. Try not to rub the fabric. Once the stains are gone wash very gently and be sure to rinse thoroughly. I did this recently with an eighty year old christening gown and it came out snow white.

    Cute!! So glad you snatched it up. Those pixies look like the little "boo boo's" in the Mabel Lucie Atwell{1879-1964} pictures. They are meant to protect babies and little children. There was a fabric line that came out in about 2001 featuring them and little children. I still have some. You may be able to get the rust out of the background fabric with a product called Iron Out. Do a test spot first. {It is used for toilets, sinks, tubs, and white clothes.} Take care not to use it on colors. Enjoy your quilt!

    So darling!! I love pixies, elves and fairies. I would have rescued it too. Glad it found a home and I hope it comes clean for you. :)

    It's adorable. You have to wonder why anyone would just put it in a throwaway box and why, if it was made by a family member, nobody wanted to keep it. Enjoy!!!

    Try soaking it in Oxyclean, I have found that usually takes out most stains and doesn't destroy any fabrics or floss

    Bet it is from the 1950's. Looks like my baby quilt my mom made me.

    If it is rust on the quilt. Go to the laundry section of your grocery store and buy rust out. It's a clear liquid that when you put it on rust on cloth the rust magically disappears before your eyes. It's easy on fabric. I always keep a bottle around.
