FIREPLACE QUILT

I changed things around just a bit.  Decided to hang a quilt over the fireplace.  I wanted the fireplace wall painted a different color.  It is a rust right now.  But now that the quilt is hanging there, I don't feel the same way about the color.
The wall looks more red in this photo.

I have been busy working on projects but am not ready to take a picture just yet.  I will be back soon to share with you.

That looks great! I love the quilt above the mantle. I think the paint color looks very rich. Pretty.

You know how I love my fireplace quilts - yours is a great look. And the Red Wagon-ish nativity is so special. Love it -thanks for sharing.

I love the bold colors, my place is boring beige. I have a brick fireplace I'd like to paint, but I'm not brave enough. Love your quilt.

I want to do some 'color' in my home and I am a chicken, so my hat is off to you! A quilt over the fireplace is better than a picture and says so much about the person living in the HOME.

Oooo that quilt looks like it was made for that wall. It's such a beautiful quilt too!!!

I salute your bravery in having such a bold color in your home. My home is so little I could never get away with it.
