How can I display a quilt?

I was given a lovely handmade quilt that I would like to display. The quilt measures 60" x 72". The only available wall space I have for hanging it is 56" wide. How can I best fold or frame the quilt without damaging it, so it will fit in that space? I was thinking a shadow box type frame might work, since I only need to adjust for a few inches on each side. But I am not sure how I would make the frame or how I would mount the quilt in it. Any ideas would be appreciated!
