Ok, so I am working on a wall hanging for my mom for her birthday. She loves pansies so I am doing 3 appliqued pansies. My question is what is the preferred method used to hang the wall hangings? It will probably be maybe 12 x 36 with the 3 blocks on top of eachother going down. Not entirely sure of the total size yet. I have done sleeves on my bigger ones to hang w/ a curtain rod, but this one seems too small to do that with. HELP!!

Here is a link to Ami Simms Alzheimer's quilt site that has several methods for preparing small quilts for hanging:
