The other night I went to a private estate sale. This appliqued dogwood quilt was folded and hiding under a pile of blankets. It was filthy, dirty. I could not even tell that the top was white. I kept debating with myself and then thought maybe it just needed some love.
I took it home and soaked it overnight in Vintage Textile Soak. I could not believe my eyes the next morning. It looked fabulous! I wish I had taken a picture of the scalloped edge for you. I am so glad I spent the $20 and brought it home.
I also purchased this tablecloth for $5 which was badly stained with yellow spots. It soaked all night with the quilt and at least 85% of the stains came out. Vintage Textile Soak is amazing.
I'm going to be using my favorite lavender ironing water to iron the tablecloth. I purchase this often at a local barn sale. I love the way they package it. The ball jar holds the refill, so pretty.
I have been reading about these two books on a lot of blogs and thought I would check them out myself. Wonderful patterns, I could see myself making most of the quilts in the Schnibbles book and I can't say that for many quilt books.
Have a fun Saturday!
