Sometimes, it can take decades to finish a project.
The quilt block was made by someone a long time ago, never finished and I picked it up somewhere back in the 80's
I added reproduction fabric to the edges of the block and started hand quilting it back in the 90's but never finished it when I realized the stains on the quilt block would probably not come out. The pillow top was tossed aside since I didn't want to waste the hand quilting time on something that wouldn't turn out so great.
The other night, I was looking for some quick projects to practice free motion machine quilting and thought I would try again to finish this pillow cover.
I removed what little hand quilting I had stitched and used this project to practice pebble quilting and some feathers.
Not all the stains came out when I washed it and I will probably try a more aggressive stain removing attempt but for now I like it.
