Can anyone point me in the direction of a good wall quilt hanging system or hooks or something that can be used to hang a quilt without a sleeve? I know people don't like to usually do this and it may distort the binding, etc, etc,. However, this is for my mother-in-law who does not sew and does not live close enough for me to put a quilt sleeve on for her. I've been searching the internet, but can't find anything that is affordable/reasonable.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Jim

We got THESE for several Navaho rugs my husband didn't want to put holes of any kind in. Don't know if they're anything you're looking for. They come in lots of finishes and sizes.

Quote:
a good wall quilt hanging system

Jim--
Sending this as a PM, as I'm a sewing newbie, & know nothing at all about quilts--not even what a quilt sleeve is.
But I think I understand the essence of the problem. In my part of the country, hanging Navajo, & other, rugs is a common situation; & various systems exist for this.
Since I understand nothing of the normal situation, here's an off-the-wall idea; it's untried, but if I had it to do, this is what I'd try.
2 narrow--1.5" or less--thin strips of plywood, ideally 1/4" or 3/8", the length of these being the width of the top end of the quilt. Or, in this idea, the strips wouldn't have to be continuous; e.g., if the quilt were 6' wide, 3 (sets of ) strips of 1.5' length probably would work.
Form a sandwich of the strips for bread, the quilt for meat. Use 6 (say), 1" C-clamps, at regular intervals, tightened enuf to keep the quilt from slipping out. String a clothesline, actual or equivalent, thru all the clamps; & use this as the support for the quilt--a loop, with the upper part supported on 1 or 2 (or 3) wall hangers.
HTH, if only as an idea.

I guess this has to be an OOPS!!
Thought I sent that as a PM; guess I need some more PR technical instruction.

I have some of these hang ups and they work pretty well. Might need 3 or 4 for a heavy quilt. I have two on a 20" quilt and it doesn't seem to be stressing the binding at all.

For a really lightweight quilt there are some 3m clips that will work well if mounting on a wall that can take the 3m adhesive

Museums are now using a wall-mounted muslin covered metal strip and small, powerful rare earth magnets placed on the front of the textile to hold wall mounted textiles. A google search on magnets for textile mounts pulls up descriptions and sources. (Edited to correct IPad's wonky spelling. Sigh.)

I use these. You can use as many as needed across the top.

I have one wall hanging that has been up since mid summer and another since Christmas.

If weight is an issue, a local quilt shop may be able to put on a sleeve for her.

I have a great aunt's quilt (hand pieced for me) hanging with drapery rings w/ clips (similar to these) on a curtain rod mounted high on the wall.

It's not as flat to the wall as I'd like, but it looks good.

I think I bought mine at Target (?) - and bought the rod and rings together so they'd match.
