In one of my recent posts, I mentioned that I am going to make a baby quilt for my husband's niece as a gift for her baby shower this summer.
Well, my sister-in-law Donna called me the next day and asked me if I was interested in having my great-aunt's quilt handed sideways (not down) to me from my brother, Thomas.
Well I said YES!
Most of it is in pretty good shape.
But there is some damage along two of the edges.
My sister-in-law thinks maybe it was a full size quilt used on a twin bed and it got stepped on a lot. I think that's a pretty good deduction. She's smart, that Donna.
Anyhoots, I would like to wash it, but I don't know how, especially without ruining it. Does anyone know a good way to do this? I suppose I will have to do it by hand, and in the bathtub because its too large to put in a wash basin. I don't know what kind of soap to use either. Or should I just leave it alone? It is really yellowed on the back, which is white. And maybe I should wait until my clothesline is back up so I can hang it out in the sun to dry. If anyone has a suggestion, I am all ears.
Well, we are off to watch some of our old Irish dancing friends do a show at one of our favorite restaurants. Have a great evening!!
