Quilt Festival



Here is my submission for the QUilt Festival. I just couldn't resist. You know me i love to play along!!!

So, this is one of my most favoritest quilts. I made it back in 2005. I found the pattern in an advertisement for batting one time and loved it...then the pattern showed up in a super old Quilters Newsletter magazine. I had to do it! It was made with templates- so not my favorite- and lots of little tiny squares - the pattern being done before strip piecing- I quilted it on my Janome Sewing machine, I hadn't bought the big one yet.
I am guessing on the size. Should have measured it...but i am thinking it is around 70" X 80" or something like that.

This was an Ugly Quilt Challenge. You buy a brown lunch bag with 4 one yard pieces in it. You take those and make a quilt with it. Very challenging! You so have to think outside of the box on these. I love them!!!

Here is the label.

Quilting


backside
As you can see from the photos there is little brown spots all over it. Yup, the brown bled. ugh. It has spots on the back and the front. Little brown faded specks. Not sure what to do with it....the spots. It has ruined its hanging days. Now it just lies draped over a quilt ladder strategically folded to show no spots.
any suggestions?

Wanna see some more quilts? Go to the post and check out that list! Happy Searching!

This is a stunner! Just love the pattern! Don't know how you were patient enough to do it!

As for the spots, can I suggest shaving cream? Yep, shaving cream. I once spilled red wine on a new (of course) white carpet. Shaving cream got it up. I'd try a small spot first. Good luck!

It's beautiful. Have no idea what to do about the spots. I've heard that club soda works but I've never tried it and don't know.

Your quilt is gorgeous! I ruined one of my quilts that HAD to be in a quilt show. I searched everywhere for something to remove the stains and finally I tried Rit Undie! It was amazing! It removed fluorescent pink from white! :)

Well the "ugly duckling" fabric turned into a "beautiful swan" quilt :)

Beautiful quilt! Love the pattern. I had a quilt recently where the blue batik fabric bled onto the white background fabri, I soaked it for about 4 hours in Oxiclean. It took out the majority of the bleeding. Give it a normal wash after soaking.

Good luck getting it out.

Very nice quilt- I know that there are things called color catchers that might help solve your color spots problem. I have not tried them but heard really good things about them.
It must have been a challenging quilt to make but well worth the effort.

Thanks for sharing your beautiful quilt.

Regards,
Anna
