I had a friend tell me that she had a quilt that she wanted to hang on the wall on a curtain rod, but she had to sew loops in the quilt so it would hang on the rod. I decided to build her a quilt hanger that doesnt require hanging loops on the quilt. I am sure many of you have seen these before. It’s actually two pieces of wood (narrow boards) that are the length of the end of the quilt. You insert the edge of the quilt between the back and front board, then screw down the knobs and it pinches the quilt and holds it in place. I routed a dado through the middle of the back of the front board so the quilt would bunch up and lock between the front and rear board. The knobs have threaded studs in them that screw into a T-nut that is mounted in the back of the rear board. I used a keyhole router bit to cut a couple of hanging slots in the back of the rear board so it can hang on the wall. I also used the router to put a decorative trim along the front board. It’s made from pine with a colonial oil stain. This paticular one I use to hold a flag in my family room.

Very nice. This might be one of the 1st projects I tackle from LJ. My mother and grandmother are both quilters.
