Where to keep quilts when not in use?

What do you do with your heavy quilts or coverlets at night when its too hot to use them? I'm looking for alternatives to my current tactic of leaving them piled on the floor.

I've finally got a bedroom cobbled together out of more than Ikea furniture and hand-me-downs. But I'm still having trouble breaking the habit of not making my bed all the way. What's the point of having a coverlet you leave on the floor? Ideally I'd like something that would allow me to easily re-make my bed without having to unfold or unpack every morning.
I can't just fold it down to the end of the bed because I'm a weird sleeper and I don't like anything tucked in or heavy around my feet. Which leads to everything but my blanket ending up on the floor.
Ideally I'd like something nice at the foot of my bed to push it on, so I can easily make the bed in the morning. Does anybody have any creative ideas other than the standard "quilt rack" in the corner? Bonus points for affordability and possible DIYness.
