Hello, friends! Today I’m sharing a few new Simple Quilt Hanging Ideas. I’ve recently (finally) started to get more of my quilts up on the walls, and thought you might be interested in some of the methods I’ve been using. I’ve also filmed a quick video so you can see exactly what I’m describing for some of these methods.
Simple Quilt Hanging Ideas
I sometimes can’t believe we’ve been in our new home for over a year now. I still have decorating I need to do, and this spring I’ve finally started to get some more of my quilts up on the walls. Today I’m sharing some of the methods I’ve been using to hang up my quilts.

Watch my recent video with an up close look at several of my quilt hanging methods. Or go here to watch it on the YouTube channel.
Simple Corner Pockets and Dowels
For mini quilts and small to medium sized wall hangings, I often use a simple corner pocket method with a dowel that I rest on nails. I’ve already written a blog post and filmed a video on this method that you can see explained here. The Mini Spools quilt above is hung in this manner. The Mini Log Cabin quilt next to it is hung with the small Classy Clamps I share below.
Classy Clamps & Magic Hangers
I recently received a sample of the very easy to use Classy Clamps (while I received these for free, all of these opinions are my own, and I absolutely love this product). These wooden quilt hangers come in two different sizes and in three different finishes. They easily adjust to hold your quilts and come with screws for the wall. A pre-drilled hole on the back of each clamp slides onto the screw. In the video above I walk you through how simple it is to use these handy hangers. I also shared the Magic Hangers that I purchased a couple of years ago at a quilt retreat. They are also an excellent way to hang quilts but require a more permanent installation method.
Rod Hangers + Dowels/Trim
In today’s video I also shared how you can use a half-dowel or trim piece with a flat edge to hang quilts. This method requires drilling a small hole in each end of the trim piece or half-dowel and using screws to anchor. You’ll also need to put a quilt sleeve on the back of your quilt to use this method.

I am so glad to see that you retract the blade on your rotary cutter each time you use it! They can be so dangerous if not used properly! Thanks!

Do you have any suggestions for some mini quilt patterns?
