    Have you considered making a wall hanging out of the old quilt?

    Hi Dranly,

    Have you tried it on your bed? Sometimes king size comforters will actually fit a full or queen size bed like a bedspread. I always buy a much larger comforter than my bed for that reason. If that doesn't work, then I'd go with Joyce's idea and hang it from a wall. If it's too big for a wall, you might be able to fold it and put it on the bottom of your bed or on your couch. Wishing you the best.

    If you sew at all you couls also cur it to the size you want and sew on blanket binding(fabric store) to finish the cut edges. Your own blanket binding could also be made with cute coordinating fabric. Check out Pinterest for making your own seam binding. You would just make it wider.

    Just be aware that any thing that you put on an old quilt changes the value of the quilt. The age of a quilt is determined by the newest fabric in it. SO if you cut it down to resize, you could be destroying the long term value of your lovely quilt. You might want to put a casing on the back of one side that you can insert a dowel through and hang it on your bedroom wall as a decoration. That has become very popular these days and in back of the head of your bed could be a lovely memory reminder of your Grandma. I would try to avoid having it where it has a direct sunlight shine on it.

    Sliding glass doors is my answer to a queen or king size homemade quilt, or slice and sew to make long curtains.......Table cloth for a big table. Long bed pillows sewn for gifts. I have seen so MANY projects with quilts, endless ideas. Good Luck. Quilts last forever!!

    Have you considered putting it on a quilt rack by the foot of the bed or by a wall on display?
