Default Hanging your quilt

Dear all. I have a quilt that I would like to hang in my home. I want to use something that is as invisible as possible and inter changeable so I can change the quilt from time to time. I have seen something from Europe at the Festival of Quilts. Does anyone know the company or have any ideas.

Depends on how large your quilt are. Mine are small so I use the invisible command strip hooks.

Ckcowl has a wonderful suggestion. I think those little wooden holders are wonderful!

The "Hang It Dang It" is invisible, it hangs with just one nail, and the size is adjustable.

I recently hung a large quilt behind a bed. I made the sleeve in several sections, and then used a plain extension rod (because that's what I had) and (4) 3-pound Command Hooks. The hooks were positioned in the gaps of the sleeve. It worked really well, and I can change out the quilt very easily.

I use curtain rod and hooks, whatever size needed, into drywall. Used those command things on several lite weight pic in house and after 3yrs they just dropped from the wall! Therefore, I don't trust them......in my world...into the wall, not on top!

"Hang It, Dang It" is my favorite method. It only requires one nail in the wall and the quilts are self leveling if you follow instructions to attach the hanging clip dead center. You can goggle them. They are sold several places. They have 3 sizes and they telescope so you can hang any size quilt. Love them.

I use cafe curtain rods. They only hang about and inch from the wall which adds great dimension to the quilts.
