Library Show is up..

My June show at the Central Rappahannock Library in Fredericksburg Va. is hung, and looks great. It's nice to see them all together in a great, well lit spot.  It will hand the entire month of June. Normal library hours.
All works are for sale.

Congratulations - it looks great. How do you hang your quilts, out of interest - do you add a hanging sleeve to the back?

Yes, I do. I sew a 3-4" sleeve on the back, and cut a wooden slat about 1" shorter to fit through it. I wire the ends, and staple the wire to the ends of the slat, which stick out about 1" or so from the ends of each sleeve. If it's a big quilt, I will do the same to the bottom (minus the wire) so it hangs straight.
