With a quilt that old I imagine it's been washed before?

I'm not sure if you can restore color to a fabric that's old and worn.

Perhaps think of those 'imperfections' as love marks and accept the look? A well used quilt is a loved one.

I think about people who leave couches out front for free - to them, it's the memories that make it look perfectly good to give away. To drivers it could be thought of as icky.
