    It was good of you to rescue it! It looks old and probably took someone a lot of time and care to make. I hope it washes up nicely.

    I have picked up many stained pieces like this, bring home and wash. I cut off the hand done section and put it in the middle of a square of crazy quilt pieces, makes a wonderful quilt and reminds you some lady probably spent hours working on this.

    Think she made a point of using 'all fabric' bleach

    So very cute, pixies are very cute. Lots of time and work went into this. So good of you to rescue it and give it a home. Always a fear that one of mine would end up like that.
