    I had a panel, and planned to just "turn" it so i didnt neeed to put a binding on...was going to be a simple wall hanging.
    Anyhow.......I forgot to put it in the right order in order to do this, and did a normal quilt sandwich.
    After i quilted it.....i realized i couldnt turn it!! (dont sew when you are tired LOL)
    So.....now it needs a binding.......but how do i put tabs on top to make it a wall hanging????????
    Do i need tabs??????
    How do you hang your wall hangings???????
    Ive never made a sleeve..is that what i need to do???????
    inquiring minds need to know!!!!! :)

    Possibilities ...
    * a sleeve
    * tabs (as you mentioned)
    * a sleeve with a split in the centre, then put on one of those picture hangers to hang it on a nail
    * corner triangles that hold a dowel or piece of wood to hang from (my favourite lately, for wall hangings)

    All can be done before you put on the binding.

    this website does a good job explaining the corner triangles. I agree that I like it for hanging wall hangings.

    Sew them on. Bind. Then hang ... the loops/tabs will hold the wall hanging on the rod, and the quilt will have enough weight to drop it in place.

    In the past I have done them all including just bind it and uase a small curtion rod mounted on the wall with rings that clamp onto your wall hanging. It worked for me!LOL

    make your tabs- put them onto the front-raw edges together with top of wallhanging (tabs laying down toward the bottom) baste into place- apply binding -when you turn the binding to the back to hand stitch the tabs will -stand up- then you can topstitch to keep them standing
