I love quilts. I love everything about them: the skill that goes into the making of them; the intricate, sometimes elaborate patterns and designs (applique), the beauty of the stitches; the colors; the homey, comfy feel they add to a bed; or, better yet, as art! Yes, you can, and should, use a colorful quilt as wall art (hung carefully, of course!). Used a focal point in a room, a quilt can give a room just the right feel. In this photo, a simple pyramid of triangles, paired with neutral colors, blends beautifully with the wood trim, floors, and simple decor of the bedroom, keeping the room fresh, yet comfortable. You can purchase inexpensive quilts to use on your walls, so don't hesitate to use a striking quilt in place of other art pieces.
