More About "Hang Ups"

My little Hang Ups designs can be finished in many different ways. The metal hangers shown in the pictures in yesterday's post were originally designed to hold small stained glass pieces, but I found them to be ideal for holding these small quilts. I used a stiff, fusible interfacing instead of batting. This makes a quick-to-finish project that does not even require quilting. There are little hooks on the metal hangers and I used a small hook on each corner of the quilt to attach it to the hanger.

You can also finish these projects in the traditional way, using batting and a hanging sleeve. Then you can hang them on the wall just as you would any other small hanging.

These make great gifts for someone special. You might even be able to get one finished in time for Valentine's Day!
