Hang It Dang It Wall Quilt Hanger
A reader asks...
Has anyone heard of the Hang It Dang It Quilt Hanger?
This looks like a really easy way to hang a quilt.
Has anyone tried it?
If you've hung quilts with this system, please do rate and comment on the Hang It Dang It wall quilt hanger system
. Since I have not used it, I did a little research.
This quilt hanging system is advertised as a "one nail/self-leveling" wall quilt hanger.
It comes in three sizes for quilts from 21" to 35"
, from 35" to 63"
and from 63" to 104"
To hang your quilt, you'll need:
- A finished quilt with a standard quilt sleeve sewn to the back at the top, the sleeve can be continuous, no need to split the sleeve in half to leave a gap
- Hammer and nail
- Ladder or step stool if you need to reach a higher spot on your wall
- Straight pin
Quilt Hanging Instructions
Just follow these easy steps (or skip to the Hang It Dang It instructional video
- Find the center of your quilt, mark it with a straight pin on the back of your quilt.
- Match the center of the hanging rod (there's a line) to the center of the sleeve.
- Pull the ends out on the rod until they are even with the edge of the quilt sleeve on both sides.
- Give each end of the rod a slight twist to lock it in place. (You don't want your rod changing size on you when you're in the middle of hanging.)
- Now slide the Hang It Dang It rod into your fabric hanging sleeve, aligning the rods ends with the edges of the sleeve.
Make sure the rod is positioned at the top of the sleeve.
- Take your hanger bracket, match it to the center of your quilt sleeve where it's marked.
- Snap it into place with both hands. Your quilt is ready to hang on the wall.
- Determine where you'd like your quilt to hang on the wall and hammer in a nail.
- Hang your quilt on the nail. Because the quilt is centered on the rod and hangs from just one point (the nail) it should hang perfectly straight. You can "scoot" the quilt a bit to one side or the other if needed.
