    Well this makes 3 . The top was made when I still lived in FL which was a long time ago. Moved to GA in 88. I was in my Amish period. :-)
    It will probably go to my son he has always asked for it. If he ever stays in one place long enough for me to mail it to him.

    Cigarette smoke lasts forever. My ex and I were both smokers back then and when I ironed this to layer it , could still smell the smoke. YUCK!!

    Beautiful. Now wash it in white vinegar and dry it with softener sheets. The odor should come right out.

    You might even try just tumbling it with softener sheets or hanging in sunlight. (Maybe not sun light as those bright colors may fade.)

    Its been washed and dried. I always do that with my quilts that are going to be used. If something is going to fall apart....
