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.

I have also seen a padded bed headboard re-covered with a quilt which looked nice

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!
