What is the point of having a quilt?
Because each layer is thin and made from breathable fabric, a quilt is a great lightweight option for those who think a weighted blanket sounds like an extra layer of hell or who always wake up sweaty. It’s also perfect if you prefer your bed to look sleek and tidy rather than fluffy and disheveled.

How do you hang a blanket on the wall without ruining it?
The easiest way to hang a blanket on a wall is with nails or pushpins. It’s straightforward, and you don’t need other tools to do so. You can place the nails or pins only at the corners, but if you don’t want a draped finish, setting the nails in a row at the top of the blanket will make a straighter look.
