I'm working on a fabric panel that will be a wall hanging. It measures approximately 33 inches wide by 39 inches high, without borders or binding. The borders and binding will add about 5 inches all the way around, so finished size will be about 38" W X 44" H. I'm using 80/20 batting, so it's not thick or heavy.
The selvages are at the top and bottom of the panel, going crosswise of the panel when it will be hung.
Would it be wise to turn the backing fabric so the selvages are going top to bottom (just the opposite of the front panel) to avoid possible stretching issues when hanging it?
