- Slip one end of the quilt over the bar in the quilt rack.
Also question is, how do you put a sleeve on a quilt?
Sew a Hanging Sleeve After the Quilt Is Finished
- Cut or piece together fabric to make a strip 9" tall and the same width as the quilt.
- Fold under both short edges about 1/4", wrong sides together.
- Now fold the strip lengthwise, wrong sides together, aligning its raw edges.
- Place the open seam against the quilt's back.
Secondly, how do you make a hanging sleeve for the back of a quilt? Cut the sleeve 8½” wide x the exact width of your quilt. Fold the ends in twice (¼” and ¼” again) to finish each end of the sleeve. Stitch using a scant ¼” seam allowance. Press the long sides of the sleeve so they meet in the center.
In this way, how do you hang a quilt on a ladder?
Check out a local antique shop, yard sale, or flea market for vintage ladders. Simply lean one against the wall and drape your folded quilts over its rungs. Be sure to clean the ladder thoroughly before using it. And if there are children around, it's also a good idea to anchor the ladder to the wall.
