    here is a px of my latest piece.
    I've been doing several w/ irregular borders, does anyone have ideas how to hang them so that they will lay flat against the wall (other than the multiple push-pin technique that I've been using(!))
    thanks for the help :mrgreen: :-D

    Love your colors. I don't know how to hang it because of the shape.

    Depending on the size, you could cut a piece of foam board the same shape. It's very light weight. OR in the piece above, I would add a second sleeve at the top of the wide section and insert a thin dowel. might want an additional dowel at the bottom of the wide part, then I would add some weight to the bottom. Could use drapery weights or a larger dowel, with yes another sleeve.
    Great quilt, by the way!!

    A hanging sleeve on the 'top' side, then soft double sided tape to hold stagtegic spots. It's white condensed foam sold in rolls in the tape department. Works for Christmas stocking and to keep other decorations straight.

    I don't know the answer to your question but my first response when I looked at your photo was, "wow, isn't that pretty! And interesting to look at". I really do like it.

    It will be a pain, but I would put a sleeve and a dowel rod at the top, the same on the sides except use nails/push pins behind it to push the dowel out as far as possible. That's the only way I can think of

    thanks for your ideas-
    I'm going to experiment w/ the extra dowels and double-sided tape

    My sister in law uses those sticky velcro pads to hang her Spicy spiral on the wall. Works great and is definitely an irregular border (smile).
