How do you hang a quilt on the wall without damaging it?
Use self-adhesive strips.
“Hold the strip parallel with the top edge of the back of the quilt, just inside the binding, and sew it down using a whip stitch around the edges. Repeat until you have a strip in each corner, and every 18 inches or so, and then hang it like you would a large picture.”
How do you hang a quilt on the wall with Command Strips?
Peel off the quilt, apply pressure for 30 seconds to each wall-strip, and then wait for an hour. Hang the quilt! Re-align the strips on the quilt to the strips on the wall, and press hard, locking the strips. Enjoy!
What size is a wall hanging quilt?
The quilt finishes at about 30″ x 42″–the perfect size to fit on nearly any wall.
How do you display a small quilt?
For small quilts, sew a couple of small clear plastic rings, one on each corner of the top of the quilt. Put a couple of nails, or even push pins into the wall, and hang the quilt.
Do you have to use rubbing alcohol for Command strips?
Command strips can only be applied to smooth surfaces. Avoid adhering them to brick walls, textured wallpaper, concrete or timber. Strips work best on clean, smooth surfaces, so wipe the wall with isopropyl rubbing alcohol (methylated spirits) first.
How do you finish a wall hanging?
To finish on a simple frame loom, cut the warp threads off the top of the frame, tie the two warp threads together, then weave the ends in through the back of your weave. If you don’t want to finish your weave by tying off your warp ends, see my post on finishing with the hem stitch.
Can you hang a tapestry with Command Strips?
For strict landlords: If your tapestry is thin fabric, you can use tack, velcro, pushpins, or Command Strips. For thicker woven materials, you might consider attaching your wall hanging to foam core first to distribute the weight a little better and then attach.
How do you hang a quilt with a dowel?
Slip the dowel evenly through the hanging sleeve. Hold the quilt (with dowel) up against your wall, positioning where you want it and being sure it’s level. Then mark with a pencil where the center of the eye screws are. Then hammer the nails at those marks, and hang the quilt by putting the eye screws on the nails.
