    Beautiful! You should enjoy it a little longer tho! Even tho I put away all the Christmas decorations the day after Christmas, I do leave out my Christmas quilts (and dishes) thru the end of January - just because they are so pretty!

    Beautiful. I agree, leave it on at least through New Year's day. Too pretty to put away yet.

    Why not call it a winter quilt and leave it out, it is just too beautiful to put away and not enjoy. I made a 12 Days of Christmas wall hanging a few years ago and so I can enjoy it longer I put it up the day after Thanksgiving and don't take it down until after the fist of the year. I also collect ceramic Christmas Trees and have them on my antique sewing machine in a winter setting that I leave up with my snowmen all winter. I call it a winter scene of evergreen trees not Christmas trees after the holidays. You can do the same with your quilt, it is just so pretty. GOOD JOB.

    I have a snowman quilt that I put on when the Christmas quilt is taken off. I leave the snowman quilt on until the end of Jan. and sometimes if snow is on the ground in Feb. I leave it a little longer. Thanks for the compliments.

    We always wait until Epiphany(little Christmas) for the wise men to take our decorations down and put away Christmas things.

    That is so pretty. I wouldn't want to put it away. I would use it throughout the year!

    It's gorgeous! I think I'd get it out around Halloween and put it away around Valentine's Day!

    See, this is why I won't make a "Christmas quilt". All that work to create that spectacular quilt and then it gets put away! It is beautiful, I would keep it up thru Valentine's Day.

    Very nice. I have a Christmas quilt I just love and it fits perfectly on the wall in my hall. I have been known to leave it up all year, but my kids give me such a ration of */%* I think I will have to take it down this year and make something else to fit the space.
