A Step Above- Show off several quilts by displaying them on an antique ladder hung horizontally, rather than vertically. This arrangement allows for more of each quilt to show, as well as making a powerful decorating statement in your room.To prevent the ladder from discoloring your quilt, place folded white pillowcases between the quilt and ladder

Decorating with Quilts
Changing Times -- The opportunity to turn another person's trash into your own treasure is one of the great aspects of yard sale and flea market shopping. When you're out and about, be sure to look beyond an item's intended purpose to see if there is a way it might be used to show off your quilts. This baby changing table turned display shelf got a new life with a coat of red paint. The shelves are spaced perfectly to showcase folded quilts when not in use, and the top shelf could be turned into a vignette with family photos, dishes, or other home decor items.
