    This is the only one I could find at the moment. Good Luck!
    That has made me have the biggest "well DUHHHHHH" moment ever lol. I've shown my dad and he wants to make one of those clamps as he feels it would be nice to be involved too. We would get one shipped from the USA but odds on it will get broken in transit.

    Rock on getting it up on the battleship grey wall, oh its going to be a big feature :)

    A fine piece of oak to hold a fine piece of Quilting. We can now get our photos on the wall too :)

    But, this is just me.
    I think he is trying to compliment you by considering your quilt as a piece of art that he wants to display where everyone can see it. Providing that he keeps it out of direct light your quilt will beautify his home forever. :-D

    I was in an apartment where I couldn't put hardware on a wall. A quilt shop owner told me this is what they do. This was a big shop, and the owner said they take regular t-pins or push pins, and very carefully push the pin through the fabric of the quilt in one corner, then into the wall. The pin doesn't tear any thread because it's small, and just makes a tiny hole in the wall. Medium quilts only need two or three pins, but a very large one may need more. I have done this ever since, with NO damage to any of my quilts.

    I second the idea.

    I like to make a double hanging sleeve, insert a dowel or steel rod and use Command hooks to hand the dowel or rod. When you take the quilt down, remove the Command hook and there is no damage to your wall at all. No nail holes or anything like that.
