    Your quilts look lovely
    I have quilts in my sewing room, not in the rest of the house.
    Paintings are on the other walls, even in the bathroom, oddly enough.

    A number of quilts decorate my home as well as the homes of my children, nieces, nephew, etc. Your home looks lovely with your beautiful work displayed throughout.

    Mine decorate a lot of people's homes, but definitely my own as well. On the beds, chairs, couch, walls, and windows! I like being able to change them from time to time.

    Boy those are beautiful quilts. I love those colors and the patterns you chose. I've only got one of my quilts and it's hanging on the quilt rack in need of more quilting! Then I will probably give it away. The rest have all be sent to new homes. But after seeing your lovely home I may have to reconsider and make some for me! My husband likes things on the walls and many of the walls in our new house are empty.

    You have beautiful quilts and they look great in your home. I have a few hanging, but could use more.

    Yeah, a girl after my own heart. I have quilts all over this place and wish I had more wall space for them. Hubby made me take down the quilt over the dining room table of a dog lifting his leg on a tree. Gheez the man has no sense of humor!

    I have them on every bed and one on the den door. One drapes over a cabinet door in the living room.

    I display some, I have given most away as gifts. I don't use them on furniture, I don't like for people to sit on them, it pulls the seams. But I do like the way they look on your walls and bed. Very pretty.

    I have four 4'x6' windows in the great room and all panelling (ugh). I am considering making quilts to cover the windows for the winter to help keep the cold out. Maybe insulated fabric next to the window, then the quilt. Years ago a company made something similar to go behind your curtains. Why not use beautiful quilts? Hope fading doesn't happen, however.

    Yes and my daughter's house as well. Actually she hangs them herself, but I have given her many quilts and wallhangings. She has a couple hanging that she made herself. Your quilts and home are beatiful.

    Very pretty! I just keep one on the back of the couch, my mom has one I made for her on her bed, and my brother uses one I made for him years ago. I have a lot of my cross-stitch pictures hanging on my walls.

    Thanks again for all your kind replies.
    Most of our family members have quilts I made also; I am currently working on one for DH's sister for her big birthday. Will post pics when it is finished.

    Your quilts and displays are lovely. I would like to see pictures of some other posters home quilt displays too. So far I have only completed two quilts. The first went to my husband. He uses it to nap under on the couch. The 2nd one is going to my son and his wife for 1st anniversary quilt. It is full bed size. I have a nap size quilt in the frames being quilted. I think I am going to give that to my other son. The 4th one is on the design wall about ready to begin piecing. It is a nap size quilt for my youngest granddaughter. If I ever live long enough to finish my bucket list of quilts, I want to make some of those gorgeous wall hangings.
