There are many types of ways to display a quilt on a wall. There are rods or wood shelves with a rod underneath in which to hang the quilt. Be sure the wood has been treated with a protective finish and is not raw wood. One can sew a sleeve on the back top edge of the quilt or just drape the quilt over the rod.
How do you hang a quilt on the wall without damaging it?

How do you display antique quilt blocks?
