Incorporating Woodsy Quilts Into Modern Decor?

Good Questions

Q: I have a very modern, sophisticated style. My rooms are taupe, furniture has clean lines, and art is minimalist. My husband and I bought a set of beautiful handmade wall/decorative quilts on a trip to the Yukon, and they are more suited to a log cabin in the mountains than a downtown loft.

They're animal/scenery, brightly coloured and "homey" looking, rather than clean and contemporary. But I LOVE these quilts, and I don't want to shove them into a closet. How can I incorporate this sentimental art into decor that doesn't seem to welcome it? I had thought about box framing the pieces in contemporary frames, but I am looking for other ideas.
