    Have read about a device called Hang It Dang It. Haven't used It but seems like an easy way to hang them. Search for it on this board as has been discussed before.

    What is your objection to adding a sleeve? Just curious.

    I saw a really nice quilt hanging unit that uses two powerful bars of magnets to hold the quilt. I just can't remember the name, but it was quite nicely made and made changing a quilt very easy.
    I just found one similiar its called "easy display".

    Here is another

    Thanks, Lori, your link is one of the hangers I'm considering.

    These are quilts I use and, when they're not in use, I'd like to display them. I don't like sleeves on my bed quilts, personal preference. And I have a few of my grandmother's quilts that I might like to put up occasionally. Since they're not going to be permanently hung, I don't want to add sleeves.

    I'm really thinking, that because I want to hang larger quilts, that the long clamp type would be better to keep them from stretching since the weight is evenly distributed. But I was wondering if anyone has used this kind and what they think of them. They're not cheap and I don't to make an expensive mistake.
    I have one with the squeeze bar type system! Or the long bar clamp style, not sure what the correct term is. The board strips squeeze together with wooden knobs that you turn to tighten. It is only wall hanging size tho. I love the way they look and they are pretty easy to hang. I bought mine from a Amish store in Lancaster, it was home made and the price was very reasonable.

    I have used those big pushpins. They leave VERY small holes. After renting this house for 11 years, we are moving. I used those command strips and they pull off part of the wall...YUCK. I used a rod with them. Next house I will stich with pushpins.

    I mounted a large wooden curtain pole above my bed. It has a quilt folded over it. I can change it easily. Also could fold several for a dIfferent look. Or layer them. Being so easy to change is good as I will not be tempted to leave one there long enough to be damaged. Years ago I tacked velcro to the wall and whipped the other side to the end of the quilt and held it to the wall that way.

    I would go to the time and trouble of attaching the sleeve. Using clamps may cause permanent damage to your quilts. I automatically prepare a hanging sleeve on all my quilts. If the recipient doesn't want the sleeve, they can remove it.
