didn't think to use this in our home but now I live in a apartmentYou can't do some things but this would work anyplace. we use those 3M temporary hooks that aren't suppose to damage the wall. we Put them almost to the ceiling just in case i made a really long quilt,. we had to use the hallway as it was the only place that didn't have many obstacles and it seems to work. I have many more quilts that i want to photograph and date.
