    That is a wonderful find and if you get the rust out please let us know what you used. I have a couple of vintage pieces and would like to have some imput on stain removal.

    How did you get a hold of my quilt? Oh wait, I can still see it on my rack! It's almost dead ringer, mine is made with shirting fabrics. And I bought it as a top at a antique mall. It was being used as the back drop in a booth.
    It is also hand pieced, and I want to hand quilt it. I don't have ideas for that quilting yet. :)

    After its quilted, you might try soaking it in the tub with some oxyclean that is pretty well diluted. It should take out the rust stains and brighten up some of the colors

    Beautiful!! I have used Carbona to remove rust spots and it did not affect the material. You can ask your local quilt shop or google to see if this would work for your quilt. Or just leave the rust spots and enjoy it anyway.
