Please don’t hang the quilt to dry! It’s too heavy when wet. Lay it flat outside on a sheet, out of direct sun and away from trees (no bird poop on the quilt, please lol).
The safest way to clean it is to submerge the quilt in water in a large bathtub. Orvus is the safest soap to use.

Stitching can break if the quilt is heavy because it’s wet, and not handled correctly. Depending on the age and type of fabrics, washing will definitely change the look of the quilt. If the fabrics weren’t ever washed, shrinkage due to washing will create the puckered look you mentioned.
