Does anyone know how to sew?

My poor quilt is coming apart at the seams.  This particular quilt, which I named "144" because that's how many different fabrics it has in it, has been on my bed for a few years now.  You can see in the photo that the purple material is not holding up well at all.  There is even a patch in the top right corner already.

I need to take it upstairs and patch the rest of it soon.  One thing I would do differently if I were to make this type of quilt again, is to run lines of stitching through all of the blocks, instead of just half of them.  See the diagonal "x" in the light colored blocks?  I should have put one line in the light blocks and one line in the dark blocks.  Live and learn.
