    I made this quilt for my SIL as his fish quilt but it had horses also. So I added pictures of him and his wife and sm. daughter. He has it hanging on their wall to the downstairs on a fishing rod. Looks very nice hanging that way. Thanks for looking.

    His quilt.

    That is really nice! How did he hang it? Are there several short tabs that button over the rod? I have been collecting patterns of fish and fabrics to make my DH a fishing quilt and I like the idea of hanging it on a rod!
