Hi, I hope this is in the right spot.

I am planning selling mini art quilts at craft shows and a market this summer, and I was wondering about the hanging of them - not in my display, but for people to hang in their homes.  I guess it's a matter of taste, but is there a standard way to do it?  I like the look of a mini quilt with the dowel hidden behind the quilt, unseen.  Others like the loops showing and dowel/curtain rod showing.  What do other quilt crafters do?  I'd hate a little thing like position of loops to get in the way of a sale.  Or is it just one of those things where if someone loves the quilt, the'll buy it regardless of how they will hang it?

If you were to put a loop on the top and a snap on the back part of that loop, with the other half of the snap on the backside of the quilt... you could hang it either way!  Does that description make any kind of sense? Cheesy

Yes, it does!  I was thinking about something like that, but I was thinking maybe a loop, but instead of using snaps, maybe stitching it down to the backside of the quilt with red or other bright thread, and tell the seller to cut the thread if they want to hang it the other way...is that way too less professional looking than snaps?  It would be easier for me than snaps I think...
