    I am just starting my quilting business and have been practicing away on many of the seasonal panels I have with pantographs and freehand machine quilting with my long arm. I plan on getting my name out there by setting up booths and a few of the upcoming holiday craft shows locally to show a few of my bed sized quilts and offer to sell these panels. What would be the best universal way to prepare these panels to allow for people to hang these at home but still give them the option to use them as a table runner or draped over a chair etc? My grandma always just finished them with regular binding and when she wanted to hang them used paper clips and slid on end into the binding. I am wanting something with more of a finished professional look.

    Add a sleeve that is it big enough for a curtain rod.

    I agree, a narrow sleeve sewn flat would still allow the item to lay flat on a table. Good luck!

    As suggested a narrow sleeve sewn down would be good.

    For my personal use, I interchange many of my tabletoppers/wallhangings so I just use small pins to attach them to my wall when they are a hanging. I tend to go overboard when making quilted items for the holidays that I dont have enough tables for all my toppers! Lol and I like to make them reversible so that I have two holidays covered!

    Hi and welcome to the board from Iowa. I use a quilt holder to display my quilts that do not require a sleeve.
    Desiderata (Max Ehrmann) - Walk placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.
