Decorating with Quilts

The Martha Stewart Show, February 2011

Of the different types of bed linens Martha has collected over the years, quilts have always been her favorite.

Quilts are prized not only for their beauty but also for their versatility. They can add color and texture to your home in a number of ways.

Quilt Decor Ideas
A Beautiful Bedcovering
A new quilt is a wonderful way to give your bedroom a lift -- it can provide a vibrant focal point while keeping you warm to boot. Try coordinating your sheets and pillows with one or two of the colors in the quilt.


Hanging Art

With their lovely patterns and colors, quilts certainly are works of art. So why not put your quilt on full display as a wall or window decoration? It's a simple way to change the look of a room without painting the walls or changing the furniture.

Visit Art in a Pinch for quilt-hanging resources.

A Unique Tablecloth

A quilt makes a rustic, one-of-a-kind tablecloth that's a dinner conversation piece in itself. Many quilts are machine-washable, so food and drink stains are easy to remove.

Martha Stewart Collection Quilts
Quilts from the Martha Stewart Collection are based on the patterns that Martha has accumulated over the years. They feature beautiful stitching and cozy, reversible cotton that's fully machine-washable.
