A question

I have some small quilts and wall hangings that are starting to pile up. Does anyone have some ideas for hanging them. I was taught - hanging sleeve - with dowel through it. But I think there are many more ways to hang them. Any ideas?

I just hang them on the wall with a couple of straight pins at the top.....but I'm not sure that quilting purists might be aghast at that idea;)

Two ways...put a safety pin on each side if they're small (perhaps one in the middle for a bit larger one). Hang them on nails in your wall. Also you can make little tabs that stick up and run a dowel or branch through it.

I sew small white rings I find at Joanns and AC Moore's (I think they are for knitting) to the corners and sometimes in the center - depending on the width - and use plastic thumbtacks (or sometimes common pins) to hang them from - it leaves a tiny hole.

I haven't got any ideas, but I could certainly use some suggestions myself, so I'll be popping back to read any comments you get.

I have some Ikea poles which have clips -like crocodile clips so I simple clip a quilt up according to the season.

I like all the suggestions you've already gotten! I've wanted to try one similar to what Melanie said...I've seen curtain rods with the clips on them to hang the curtains from. A quilt would look lovely hanging from it! Also I have seen fancy towel rods used (with the hanging sleeve on the back of the quilt). Hope you find something that works for you! :0)

Hey Lynn..

Hope you are doing better and that the rain was refreshing yesterday and last night.

Okies, so are the mini's theme related? If so, why not if some are smaller like the 12" and under frame them.. and stagger upwards in a kitchen or going up the stairs..

A favorite of mine is to fold two squares in half diagonally and attach the raw edges to the back when stitching the binding. I can then insert a thin dowel rod from corner to corner and hang on a nail.

I have been using the small curtain rod and then change them out. I use the drapery hooks and when I want a new look I change the small wall hanging out.
