Welcome to Tips on Tuesdays! This is a sharing post, so leave as many tips or helpful links in the comments section as you like. There is no more sign-in code required, so hopefully people will find this easier now. The topic this week is Hanging Tips. The red link button on the sidebar links to all Tips on Tuesday posts. ; )
First off, I have a Hanging Sleeve Tutorial that some of you might find helpful. That's my first Tips contribution. Click HERE to see it.
My second hanging tip is to use masking tape! My friend Michelle taught me that when she helped me hang a show last year. You can use a loop of masking tape to secure flippy quilt corners or to flatten rippled edges once the piece is hanging. It works like a charm. One little loop can also help to keep your picture frames from slanting.
I heard Pat from our guild mention that she hangs her art quilts with adhesive backed hook and loop tape. Smart.
And finally, my grand plan from last year (that is still sitting in a box by the stairwell) was to hang a large quilt on a fancy wrought iron curtain rod. It came with brackets that would hang the quilt out from the wall just a bit. I had planned on putting a large display quilt up on our living room wall that I would change every now and then. Have you put anything on display in your home or at an exhibit? I'd love to hear any tips you have. Please share it! ; )
