Use a Decorative Curtain Rod to Hang Your Quilt
Several months after I finished Tulips Tossed, I was looking for a way to hang it on my wall. You can use a decorative curtain rod and make some simple rod pockets.
Cut some 12 1/2 inch squares. Tulips Tossed is 63 inches wide and I used 3 squares.
Fold in half so the points match, press. Fold in half again and press again.
Lay the raw edge of each folded square along the top edge of the quilt. Overlap the pockets as needed and sew along the raw edge. If you plan ahead, you can add these before doing the binding and the stitching won't show. Since Tulips Tossed was already bound, I lined up the raw edge just below the binding and used a thread that matched the top.
Hand tack the bottom corner of each pocket.
Thread the pole of a regular curtain rod through each pocket and hang your quilt. Beautiful!
