    On my great-granddaughter's quilt this is what I did. Took a thin board, 1 x 3",the width if the quilt, painted old fashioned wooden, spring clothespins, glued them to the board. Then I drilled 2 holes for hanging the board. Looks adorable. She can change quilts every so often and it cost me about $6.00 to do.

    I don't have any suggestions about hanging, but love your quilt!

    One quilt shop showed me how to hang quilts. Take a regular push pin, and carefully push it through the quilt near the binding. It will go through without tearing any threads. Put another on the other end and one in the middle and just pin it to whatever wall you want. When you want to take it down, all you have are little pin-holes in the wall, and nothing on the quilt.

    Love the quilt. I would put a sleeve. It may be a wall hanging for years and if cared for well what a great item from her past to take and hang in her dorm room r on her wall when she has her own place. The way you made this quilt makes it ageless.

    I would make tabs with button holes on each end. I would hand sew at intervals (non-choking hazard) buttons on the front and back of the quilt edge and attach the tabs for hanging. The button thread would be easy to remove at a later date.

    If I have a quilt that is in a temporary location, I hang it with used top stitch machine needles or long arm needles. I push the needles through the upper corners of the quilt and then lightly tap the needles into the wall. I sometimes anchor the lower corners as well. The quilt is not damaged in any way and when the quilt is taken down the wall is not damaged. If you have a long arm quilter that you go to, they will probably be glad to give you some used ones. This is if the walls are made of sheetrock. I wouldn't try this if you wall are plaster.

    I love this idea! I hope I remember it.
