My cousin recently sent me a link to show me how someone made corner pockets to hang a wall hanging, instead of making a tube in the back to hang it.

I thought I saved it, but can't find it, and she can't find it now either.

I KNOW its not a figment of my imagination. I did find one similar link but looked and looked and couldn't find the other link I really wanted......I searched YouTube, and some of the quilting sites, and Googled it.

Anyone got a clue? Can you help?
Thanks!

I do these all the time on wall hangings. I just take about a 5" square fold in half, put the raw edges with raw edges before sewing on binding. Then put on binding, wahlah. I sometimes put one in each corner as I am not sure which is up down or sideways hanging. I use a dowel that fits snugly between the corners and hang it up with a nail. This works great on smaller ones. If the hanging is as long as a dowel I will put a loop in the center area to support that area. All this because I don't know how to do a sleeve. :)

This works very well on smaller quilts :D:D:D
On larger quilts I would use a sleeve, there is less strain on the fabric as the weight is more evenly distributed.

Yeah, I was wondering if anyone had the link that I saw last week....

Thanks for the responses!

I already did the binding......so I will have to make the triangles w/seams inside and then turn them right side out and sew them on by hand. That's ok I can do that. :)

Thanks again!

I usually use the pockets in the corner and love the way they work. My wall hangings are all smaller.
