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.
    This would really scare me in a child's room.

    A hand sewn sleeve on the back made of the same backing material would be unnoticeable if she would deicde to use it as a quilt.

    Make a sleeve, this quilt is beautiful and deserves to be hung right.

    I got my rod and clips at Bed Bath and Beyond....I don't know if you have that in your area, but it is available online. Beautiful quilt.

    Beautiful quilt! I can see why she wants to use it for a wall hanging.

    what about the rings with little clips that clasp right onto the top of the quilt.

    The rings slid right onto a pole and there it is, hanging beautifully for all to admire.

    I found out later that a rod is not practical because it would make the closet door not open all the way. I think I'm going with a sleeve, not going all the way to the edge and with a space in between for a 3rd nail, to be hung "suspended" behind the quilt with the smallest dowel possible. It's also a wood wall and they want as few holes as possible. I hate the shipping both ways, but it should be done right. Thanks for all the advise and compliments.
