Hanging Quilts

I promised to share photos of my quilt hanger and how it works. Many people asked after I shared this photo.

I actually have several of these.

They are compression hangers. I bought one years ago at Cracker Barrel. The others I’ve picked up at garage sales and thrift shops.

I don’t worry if the quilt is a bit too long or too short. This is how they work. You unscrew the knobs holding the front and back pieces together.

Then you tuck the edge of the quilt in between and tighten the knobs. Voila! So easy to change quilts and no sleeves are needed.

I have found a few other methods that I use as well. This first idea came from Ann Hermès at Notes from the Quilt Lab.

I hung the yard stick with space between the stick and the wall.

Then I used these little clips from IKEA to hang the quilt on the yardstick.

Here is another method, a simple curtain rod with cafe clips.

I’ve already shared that I sometimes also use tiny brass pins. You can find that post here.

Hope this helps! Have a great day!

  1. Ok, trying to comment once more (first comment was rejected). My brother makes the compression hangers, and I have one. I like it for my small quilts. That yardstick hanger is a fun idea!
