    I've used about the methods already named but I saw a new one at a recent quilt show. They ran a lath strip with large magnets attached and another strip was attached to the wall. She just slapped that puppy up there & presto! It was up there. Haven't had time to come up with plan for it but you could probably google it

    Mrs. M.---- Where do you find your clips? That sounds easier for me. I also have a very long rod that I purchased some time ago and never been used. Good way to get it out of the corner. Thanks. Marge L.

    I use plastic rings that I bought at JoAnns and stitch them on the back. Then I slide a rod through it. I then just hang it on a nail or 2.

    I forgot to add a sleeve to a recent wallhanging so I made tabs & attached them. Machine sewed them along the binding seam then hand stitched the bottoms down. I hang them from sm. curtain rods on tiny nails so as not to make big holes in the wall.

    I do the same thing ... leaving the space in the center. And if it's smaller than 36" I use a yard stick and drill a hole in the center of the yard stick and just use one nail. The yard stick makes it 'hug' the wall ... nice and flat.

I hem each end by folding it over half an inch twice. I fold the tube in half lengthwise and line up the raw edges with the top when I sew the binding on and then hand stitch down the free edges when I do the binding.
    I do the same thing then use a pretty curtain holder to hang it.

    I love the invisible hangers called No See Ums. The quilts hang so close to the wall.
