How To Hang a Quilt
Hanging a Memory Quilt can be tricky.First, it must be decided if the quilt will be hung temporarily or permanently. Once this decision is made the following methods have worked well for MQBM customers.
1. Command Strips with Spring Clips
If you wanted to hang a quilt on a cinder block wall, say in a dorm room, Command Strips with a Spring clip work well. They are not for sale at all the stores with Command Strips, but they are out there.The directions were very easy and helpful. Peel off the red side. Stick onto the plastic strip. Then, peel off black side.
After peeling off black side, attach it to the wall. Once it is firmly on the wall, slide the clip part up and off as shown on directions. It will look like this (below).
Rub these for about 30 seconds to make sure they stick. Wait one hour. Then, slide the clip back on.

1. Fabric Tabs with Curtain Rods
A traditional way to hang a quilt is by using any decorative curtain rod.
Thee rod is run through fabric tabs or a fabric sleeve that is made and sewn to the quilt.
Memory Quilts by Molly will add tabs to your quilt just like the ones shown here.
These tabs are sewn 12 inches apart a the top of the quilt.
