    I painted my livingroom last month and haven't found pictures that were right. After reading some great ideas here for displaying quilts I bit the bullit and hung 2 curtain rods in my livingroom for quilts. These were both vintage quit tops that I put together and quilted. My mom always said "use what you have". :thumbup: :thumbup:

    I like that! My mom, sister, and I have done that in our homes. I also have mini quilts handing on the walls in the hallway. I like your quilts!

    Those curtain rods were a great idea. They add to the vintage look of the quilts. You have a good eye for decorating.

    I love the quilts and how they are hung...so beautiful!
    I have a wood shelf with a dowel rod waiting to be put up in my family room. I think I will do this soon seeing how nice yours looks.
    Thanks for sharing!

    Beautiful quilts and love the idea, that would also work to hang for a design wall, now lets all go and try to find some vintage rods to hang up our quilts, thanks for sharing your cool idea

    And doesn't having those quilts hanging make the room warmer and more inviting.
