That picture is of my "watching TV" quilt. (It's not actually crooked, I just took a poor picture of it.) I don't remember whether my grandmother made it, or whether my mom made it. Regardless, I've had it for a long time.
Most of the squares you see are made of a pretty sturdy material. However, one set of squares (the squares just inside the dark pink circle) are a thin cotton. Over time, they have ripped away from the darker pink squares, leaving small holes all around the quilt. Today I sewed them up.
While I was doing that, I noticed that there were some stains on the quilt, so I washed it as well. It's now clean and ready for me to use again.
