    Got the quilt at a flea market over the weekend..30 blocks 10x10..all hand pieced..then someone who had a machine added the sashing..I would like to wash it..either before I remove the block..and then do the blocks justice in a new top..have not been able to find the name of this block-

    Darn, I love naming blocks but I'm completely blank on this one! In fact I've never seen it.

    by seeing these two blocks side by side do you think that they were meant to be sewn together with NO sashing?

    Love the block, but would not wash until it has been put together the way you really want it, get it quilted, then bound.

    I love finding old blocks that aren't used alot. It's like a little piece of history revitalized.

    Thanks for sharing,

    Hi Diana,

    What a wonderful find. I would use the gentle quilt cleaner found at your LQS. I would then soak the top, rinse, squeeze out, do not wring, the squeeze in a towel, then air dry.

    The other option is to take apart, and hand wash each block and lay on towels to dry. Then iron before putting into the new top setting you desire. They will look great. Do you have any ideas for your fabrics and layout?

    Good luck with your project and please keep us updated with pictures if possible.
