I am making a quilt for my DD's bedroom out of cross-stitched squares that I did eons ago. The quilt will be crib sized or baby size and I intend for it to be a wall hanging. What is the best method(s) for hanging quilts for display and how do I go about it?

Thank you,
Monica

Traditionally, quilts meant to hang have a ''sleeve'' attached to the back of the quilt. A sleeve is a tube of fabric, muslin will do, that is hand stitched to the backing of the quilt without the stitches showing on the front.

Cut an approximately 8'' wide strip of fabric x the width of the quilt less about a half inch or so on each side. Sew the long sides together in a long tube that will then be about 4 inches wide and position on the top back edge of the quilt. Hand stitch. Insert a hanging rod, dowel rod or curtain rod inside the tube. If the quilt is not too heavy you can actually hang the rod (using the ends projecting out of the ends of the sleeve) on push pins in the wall and it will work quite well. If you need more secure hanging, use traditional wall hooks to set the rod in.

Hope this makes sense! It's hard to describe without using my hands or a drawing!

Thank you. I figured it was a sleeve, but the specific instructions are greatly appreciated.
