Revised tip and photo

I promised Carol a photo of  the end result when you use the folded triangles in the corners of a small quilt for hanging.   I used a 1/4" dowel that was cut to length for this and then the clip ring to hang it up.  As I was taking the photo, I had a light bulb moment.....if it works on the top, it would work on the bottom of wall hangings, too!  Sometimes you need just a little added weight to make a wall hanging stay flat---especially on longer banner style hangings, and the corner triangles are easier to add than a sleeve.

Revised Tip:   Cut 4 triangles 3" to 4" square.  Fold in half diagonally.  Place one in each corner of the wall hanging---aligning the raw edges.  Pin in place.  Attach binding as usual.     To hang, slip a dowel cut to length  to fit into the created pockets.

   I found a simple strippy idea  at Quiltville that I remembered---see the vertical example at the bottom of the post.  I am seriously trying to reduce the amount of 2 1/2" strips that I have accumulated.  So I went thru the 3 boxes of strips and pulled out all the blues and greens to put together using this idea.   Now I have a new night time sewing project. 
   Happy stitching,

Thanks for the tip ,I like this alot better than the sleeves and I also like the idea of putting them on the bottom to add weight to straighten out some uneven quilts that will not hang flat.
