    I like the drapery clips on a rod.

    What a great idea. I usually use the Alligator clips or drapery clips, and they are rather expensive, I think you get 8 clips for $10.00 here. I will have to try your method.

    I have a wonderful antique cathedral window quilt I use as a wall hanging up behind my bed. When I created the sleeve, I sewed the sleeve by hand so the stitches wouldn't show on the front.

    I've also added sleeves by machine on other wall hangings that I could bury the stitches..... just made sure the stitch length was loose (3.0) so when I decide to remove the sleeve it will be easily accomplished with my seam ripper.

    The quilt is really lovely. I hope that some day it will be used as a quilt.

    I do this on one wall. The only down side is the teeth in the clips can dig into the fabric so it might not be such a good idea for such a special quilt. If you sew a sleeve on by hand, it's not difficult to remove later. Might be a lot less damage to quilt and only a couple of nail holes in the wall.

    You could use some nice curtain rings that just clip on. Easy on/off kind.

    OOPS! Didn't see the post before mine, but that is what I was talking about.

    Your quilt is very pretty. They make all kinds of things to hang quilts with that would not damage it. I've seen a lot of suggestions here that will work wonderfully.

    I would never use push pins on a finished quilt. I would put a sleeve on the top and on the bottom. Hang from a rod and put a dowel/lathing strip (cut to fit) in the bottom. This should insure it will hang level, square and flat for as long as she wants it to hang. Then the sleeves can be removed or left on , they are not in the way to leave on the quilt.

    You should be flattered. That is a very pretty quilt, and will make a beautiful wall hanging. I don't have any ideas about how to hang it, but I had to tell you how nice it is.

    She doesn't need to send it back, have her get the clips, which she can find at a quilt shop or in quilting magazines that you attach to the wall.

    I have a curtain rod (white)on the wall and bought a bag of white clips to hang my quilts or wall hangings. That way if I want to change them out it's easy, remove the 3-4 clips, and done. Works like a charm.

    I would go for the sleeve also. You might even put 2. One on either side to hang both ways up & down. Love the colors.

    I use those wooden blocks for wall hangings, and they work really well. Craft stores like Michaels has thin wood shapes like flowers, stars or hearts that I paint to match the quilt and glue onto the blocks. It adds a little extra something!

    Use a hanging sleeve, they are easy to make and easy to attach.. holds the quilt nice and evenly, and is easy to remove without any pulling....

    I have made several tubes the length of the quilt rack. These can be pinned to the piece you want to hang but then removed when you want the piece to again be a bed quilt.

    I, too, have seen this. Get a decorative and decorative clips. that way, no damage to the quilt at all.
