Hanging Your Custom Quilt

Quilts make any home feel warm and inviting.  They can even add a special touch of unique decor by being displayed hung on a wall.  That is why I like to offer the option of a Hanging Sleeve for on the back of any quilt that I create.

Hanging Sleeves lay flat when not in use.  They are made from the same material as the rest of the back of your quilt.  So when not being used, you don’t even notice them.  However, whenever you wish to display your quilt on a wall, you’ll be able to simply run a dowel through the top of it.

Decorative or hidden hooks on either end of the dowel support your quilt.  This allows the weight of your quilt to be dispersed evenly a crossed the dowel and helps your quilt hang evenly.  More importantly, it keeps your quilt in good repair.

You should never hang a quilt for any length of time using thumbtacks or spins.  All the weight of your quilt will be hanging by these small pin wholes.  Over time, this can cause damage to the quilt.  This is especially so for antique quilts orheavier quilts.

For Quilts Without a Hanging Sleeve

I highly suggest that you use some form of a quilt rack for display, there are several different styles available.  From a clamp style that runs the length of the top of your quilt to a simple rod that the quilt is folded and draped over.   For quilts without a Hanging Sleeve, I highly recommend the use of a quilt rack.

Starting a Memory Quilt or Memory Pillow

Memory Quilts & Pillows are such a personal item. I feel that they deserve a very personal touch.

Because of this and the fact that there are several things that go into coming up with an estimate for any Memory Quilt, what I have found that seems to work the best is, to set a date and time for a phone appointment. I ask that you be in front of your computer while we are on the phone. Thus, allowing both of us to be viewing the same thing at the same time. This also allows a chance for me to get all the information that I need to give a very accurate estimate (usually by the end of the phone conversation). This also allows you a chance to ask me any questions you may have. After that, most if not all of our conversation is done via email (unless you request otherwise). This includes not only your estimate in writing, but pictures of the progression of your quilt(s), as well as final product pictures. Please let me know a date and time that works well for you. Also, please let me know if you would like for me to call you or if you would prefer to call me. As I do not like to call people without an appointment.
