    Hanging quilts in odd places...works for me

    I just had new drywall put up and didn't want to make any holes..."lightbulb" I used command hooks that are so popular now and can be removed easily...I hung one in the hallway with the smalled binder clips and command hookds and one on my shower curtain with the the bigger ones that fit over the shower hooks...I like it

    I also use the Command strips/hooks for hanging quilts. I use them in our RV. I use the velcro kind, one side to the quilt, one to the wall. It works perfectly! No holes in my RV walls and I can rotate my quilts around the RV or change them out.
    LOVE those Command hooks/strips!!

    I like your idea too. I'd steal the shower idea, but my curtain is already a quilt. Oh and your Lonestar looks great!

    I use the command hooks in my sewing area, I have them attached to plastic bins to hold mini WIP's and in front of my base cupboard doors and drawers to hang my rulers. The small ones fit on the drawer fronts and my 6 x 12 and 6 x 24 work great on the doors.

    Lori P, what a great avatar picture! Tell us more..

    Love your lone start quilt. Would not have thought of hanging a quilt on the shower curtain rod. I'm afraid people would use it to dry their hands on it!

    A great use for those office clips that multiplied around my house when I retired. Thank you for the creative ideas. .... and yes, I agree your lonestar quilt is beautiful.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    Very good lightbulb moment. I love binder clips and use them for everything. Don't know why but I have a problem with the command. Just me1 I guess!

    On my plaster-over-brick walls in the cottage I use Command hooks to hold cafe curtain rods.

    I pinch brass cafe curtain rod clips on the top of the quilts and thread them onto the curtain rods.

    These are easy to remove from the quilts; look more decorative than the bulldog clips; leave no mark on the quilt when attached right at the edge of the binding; can be purchased at Walmart and any other number of places cheaply.

    I've used them for decades to hang quilts in my homes.

    I use those hooks with the chrome hook, the cheaper ones. Then I take a bamboo stick and with a double thread sew my quilt to the bamboo using big stitches and then place one end over one hook and then the other. It looks cool and holds very well.

    Great idea, those command hooks are just great. I wish I had invented them. Your quilt is so pretty.
