As promised, a post devoted to the vintage quilt I recently found at a by the pound Goodwill in SE Portland ,Oregon. My guess is that it cost me about $1.50.
It is a double nine patch quilt. Meaning nine blocks...
Within nine blocks...
The double nine blocks are alternated with unpieced blocks of plain white fabric.
While the fabric on the block is plain, the stitch detail is not.
You can even see some of the pencil lines where the pattern was traced.
The quilt had two hand sized stains that looked like either tea or coffee. I say had because I spent some time this weekend getting the stains out. I used what I like to call the Magic Cream of Tartar Solution. Then, I put the quilt in the washing machine in cool water. (Oh calm yourself, it's fine!) I let it soak in a bit of Woolite and a cup of Arm and Hammer Washing Soda. Gently agitated it, and gave it a low spin. I hung it to dry overnight and then gave it a quick fluff in the dryer on no heat with a couple of dryer balls.
It came out beautifly! Only traces of the stains are left and the quilting has a nice loft to it.
I also picked up this quilt at the Vancouer by the pound Goodwill.
It appears to be made out of vintage 60's bedspreads or pre-quilted fabric,
and backed with a poly/cotton sheet.
This embroidered linen tablecloth was also lurking in the Portland Bins.
