Alternative To Storing Your Quilt: Display It

Alternative To Storing Your Quilt: Display It

We thought we'd spread the inspiration seed this week with a little quilt hanging action for your viewing pleasure. And even though it's way too hot to be thinking about using a quilt as bedding, you can save some storage space by displaying your prized quilt proudly.

My mom spotted this idea in Pottery Barn a few weeks back and immediately decided to hang her quilt (made by hand by my great grandmother). Using a dowel rod, a little extra fabric was folded over and sewn into place. Positioned high above the couch, the quilt is displayed with pride and looks immense as it covers a large portion of the wall. Hanging a quilt is a great alternative to displaying artwork or a wall of frames and channels a cozy welcoming vibe. Not to mention family memories are proudly on display, which is always a nice thing.
