In a recent hand-me-down quilting box was a ziplock bag with this partial lone star quilt in it. I am fairly sure it was started at least 20 years ago and most of the work was hand piecing.
However, over the years some of the pieces were lost, or at least they weren’t found in this bag.
And, the top had numerous stains. Yikes! Can this quilt be saved?
While I wouldn’t generally recommend it, I washed the assembled section. Carefully stain treated. By hand. Air dry. Much pressing. There were still a few stains, but I could replace those pieces.
It seemed to want a sort of modern-Amish (there’s a contradiction in terms) treatment.
But, I went too far and that bottom strip had to come off. It felt awkward somehow.
So, this is where we are. It is currently about 63″ x 81″. Finished? Saved?
