So my suggestion now is to go ahead and put a hanging sleeve on your quilts. It s easy to do. And you don't have to do what I did and put 7 hanging sleeves on in one night because at the last minute I realized I had no hanging sleeves! Aughhhhh!
Click on this link to take you to Penny's advice on how to put on a hanging sleeve. I tried to copy her article here but the pictures did not transfer so this is easier to do.

The look of the quilts hanging from the ceiling was incredible. The pictures don't give the impact you feel when you walk in and look at it in person. But if you are in the UK or Wisconsin it is the next best thing!
I really laughed then!
