    Hello everyone hope your day is just dandy. Mine is I will go see my grandchildren this afternoon.

    Now for my question...
    How do you hang quilts for wall hangings?

    Thanks a bunch.

    Some I make a sleeve on the backing and others I make loops along the top of the wall hanging. These will show. In both situations there is a dowel for the item to hang from.

    A sleeve that runs the length of the quilt I can put a dowel rod in and hang from. Because it is the whole length of the quilt, it holds up quite well.

    I learned a very simple way from a quilt pro. Make a tube of fabric at least two inches wide when finished. Sew it to the top of the back of the quilt. Slide a piece of thin wood like a yardstick or a piece of furing strip inside the tube. Finde the center of the back of the quilt and tube and go about three inches out in each direction. Use a loop of ribbon or string, attach each end with a thumbtack pushed into the tube encased wood. It should look like the wire on the back of a picture. You can hang it just like one. Every wallhanging in my house is hung so.

    I put sleeves or tabs for wallhanging and have a beautiful wrought iron quilt rack that a friends husband makes.
