    I only paid a buck for it! DH said why do you want that, nothing matches on it. Some men will never understand.
    It has a couple of stains but I think I may be able to get them out.

    Ditto and make sure the oxyclean is dissolved real well. Ask me how I know!

    I like the apparently planned randomness of it!

    For a buck you couldn't just walk away and leave that at the store!!! It will be really nice when you quilt it. Looks good right now. Lucky you!!

    Oxyclean works great BUT be careful with it. As one mentioned, make sure it is all dissolved in the water before adding the quilt. Don't rub the oxyclean directly on the fabric (it will fade it). Ask me how I know LoL

    I stiill owe my daughter a new shirt :oops:

    I would also spray the stains with Shout and let set for a while and then soak in Oxyclean. Shout has taken out old stained after wahing and drying several time. Hope I'm not too late.

    It is very beautiful and I'm glad you didn't let your DH talk you out of it.
