    have some creative ideas of decorating with your quilts...I have quite a few quilts that have been given to me or a few I made and I'm looking to use them in a creative way to deacorate for Fall...one lady I seen had a couple rolled up and and sitting in a big huge crock and that spurred my question to you all....not the typical thing of wall hanging or quilt rack but something more unique if you have ideas...Thanks...

    I made some miniature quilts that replaced those "covers" that come on your recliners. I keep another mini quilt under class on my living room coffee table. Other than those, and the one from last x-mas still hanging on the wall, the rest get too much use w/ the kids and the dog! :lol:

    I have a small ladder in the corner of the spare room with about 4 quilts hanging from the rungs, not very imaginative but it's about the wildest way any of my quilts are displayed. Look forward to hearing other suggestions.

    Many houses now have plant ledges in entries etc. I saw a home with a quilt partially hanging over the edge, a child's rocker& teddy sitting on top. It was really cute...

    Great ideas. Liked the idea of hanging a curtain rod instead of a sleeve.
    And the fence and headboard, Wow what fun.

    I have a friend that purchased two of those over the door wreath hanging things. She also purchased a dowel rod; folded the quilt over the rod and hung it on the wreath holders. Looks really neat!
