Yes, the bathtub method worked pretty well. I used Baby Magic in the bathwater, soaked the quilt for about an hour, then lifted it out carefully and -- don't gasp -- put it in my front load washing machine on gentle shortened cycle to rinse and extract the water. All but one wood stain came out, and I'm so very pleased.
A few pictures below of my Mom's antique quilt all cleaned up. All I know about it is that she and her mother made this in the 1930s from saved scraps. I think its so pretty.
