When opening wedding gifts from our family, my husband and I were a bit disappointed to receive an old fashioned quilt from Grandma — instead of the modern duvet cover we had put on our registry. After I discovered she has actually hand stitched it herself, I felt sheepish for my disappointment, and decided to put the quilt on our bed even if it didn't "go with" the modern decor. Now, after three years of living with it, I've discovered my love for Grandma's handiwork and for mixing modern decor with old fashioned quilts. Check out these inspiring quilts and online resources!
