    I made my first wall hanging and it is not laying flat as I was afraid it would do. It bows out. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get it to lay flat? Thanks

    If your wall is "drywall", you can use very fine straight pins to help stretch it out & secure it to the wall. That's what I do when I want to hang something without damaging the wall.

    You could put a sleeve at the bottom of the quilt, then insert a rod, and the weight should help pull it flat.
