Default Rescued quilt blocks

e8251bb0-45af-4a29-b33d-ef9bdac24c73.jpgThese blocks,from the 30s,were wonky,filthy,smelly. I put the quilt together,soaked it 3 days in retroclean...it changed from brown grunge to white! I don’t know why it shows up turned sideways...

Well done, the quilt does look very good, and great colours reborn from that soaking.

That must have been a challenge working with wonky, filthy and smelly blocks. You did a great job and it restored beautifully.

Yes, a beautiful restoration. Red & white quilts are just so classic!
