    I have done something similar for a friend. Not as complicated but working with old fabrics. I made a paste of oxyclean and applied to the stained area. Let sit 3 min. Rinse, air dry. I think it's then safe to use the thinnest fusible product you can find. Machine embroidery backing comes very sheer. I fused the whole block. The finishing can be done on machine.
    I also explained to my friend the quilt would have a rustic , homemade look.

    Amazingly beautiful! What a piece of joy you have created, and you found the blessing with a new friend. The "history " of this quilt should be written and kept. Many Blessings.

    I agree, it turned out so beautiful. Soft and feminine looking, but with substance. I think the quilt, you and your friend are all to be treasured.
