Question of the day is what can you do with a quilt in your home decor to enhance its beauty? Modern quilts and vintage treasures are valued for their fine workmanship, stunning beauty and historical or ancestral connections. But, today more than ever we don’t want to tuck these beauties away in a chest or trunk, we want to display them in our homes so we can enjoy them each and every day. We hope you’ll be inspired by these images that show what to do with a quilt!

Hang a treasured quilts folded over a sturdy bar on the wall for added beauty and personality. Remember to refold occasionally so creases don’t become permanent.
