Q: Hi, I recently bought the most gorgeous Otomi textile for my baby girl's nursery (due in June). I had originally planned to have it turned into a crib skirt and maybe a small pillow but the blanket arrived this week and I'm now at a total loss! It is too beautiful to cut (not to mention someone spent months hand-crafting it) and the size is larger than I expected (5 1/2' x 6'). I'm keeping the rest of the room fairly neutral since the coverlet is so bright so it's important to me that I showcase it correctly. Any suggestions for how best to use this in the design? I don't want to just hang it on the wall like a dorm room tapestry...

Editor: Otomi textiles are so beautiful you almost can't go wrong, and I agree with you that cutting it up would be a shame. Check out this gallery of Otomi Textiles in Real Homes on Apartment Therapy for some ideas - readers, what ideas do you have?
