Quilt Hanging Instructions:
- Each quilt exhibited in the show must have a 6” sleeve sewn on the back. To make a 6” sleeve, measure the width of the quilt and cut a piece of fabric the width x 12 1/2”. Stitch the short ends to hide raw edges. Fold strip in half lengthwise with right sides together. Stitch the length of the sleeve. Turn inside out and hand-stitch the top and bottom of the sleeve to the back at the top of your quilt.
(For quilts that are 72″-100″ wide you will need to make two separate sleeves, leaving a one inch space between them in the middle for hanging hardware.)
- Please provide your own hanging hardware: dowel made of 1-2 inch diameter wood or pvc, hooks and wires. For large quilts over 72″ we can provide a long dowel and hanging hardware for an additional $15.
- Apply a label (3.5″ x 2″) to the bottom right hand corner or supply a wall label. Include: your name and email address (optional), the title of your quilt and price, if you are selling.
