The way to Use a Curtain Rod as a Quilt Hanger

Quilts are works of art and it’s a pity to leave them folded in a cupboard where no one could see them. Hang your favourite quilt to the wall and create instant artwork for your home. Quilts may also be hung behind a bed instead of a headboard. Frames, permanent mounting or tacks that could damage the quilt aren’t crucial to hang a quilt on the wall. A fast modification to the back of the quilt allows you to hang your textile in a curtain pole. Utilize a rod with decorative finials for a showy display, or a go with a more subtle style if you would like the quilt to take center stage.

Assess the width of the quilt with the tape.

Cut a piece of muslin 8 inches wide and provided that the width of the quilt minus 1 inch, with scissors.

Hem the shorter sides of the muslin by turning the ends under 1/2 inch to the incorrect side of the fabric. Stitch the hem with running stitches with a needle and thread.

Put the muslin to a table with the ideal side down. Pull the underside, long border to the top in order that the muslin is folded in half an hour and you’ve established a pocket. Pin the long edges together. Iron that the muslin so there is a pressed fold along the other long edge.

Put the trapped edges of the muslin pocket to the top, back portion of the hammer and pin them in place. Hand stitch the edges of the muslin through the entire depth of the quilt. With the pocket apartment, then hand stitch the underside, creased border to the quilt. Both edges of the pocket have to be stitched to the quilt or the pocket will lift and be observable when the rod is inserted.

Pencil the positions of the curtain pole brackets on the wall with the width measurement of the quilt for a guide. The brackets will be attached marginally wider than the width of the quilt.

Slide a stud finder over the wall to find the studs. Screwing the brackets into studs is the perfect situation, but that might not be possible with both brackets. If you can’t screw into studs, use drywall anchor screws for a safe installation. If you just drill the screws into the drywall and never to your stud, the weight of the quilt on the screws will pull the bracket off of the wall.

Slide the curtain pole into the pocket. Hang the curtain pole on the brackets.
