A DIY Quilt Hanger

**Click HERE for A Tutorial for DIY Quilt Hanger. **

I’ve had this idea in my head for awhile now. I thought my pergola would be the perfect place to hang quilts to photograph them in natural light. The concept itself is pretty simple but I wanted it to be sturdy enough to hold even a king size quilt.

I popped into Home Depot a couple of times but could never find anyone to help me, so I decided to go to Lowe’s. I found Dave, who after I explained what I wanted to do, quickly got me set up with the things I needed. Coated wire, hooks, wire rope clamps, a turnbuckle, and clip rings.


Yep! I’m a happy camper.

  1. Your idea worked great! Love all the quilts. Do you leave the clips out all the time or take them down? I know that would be a lot of work but where I live, I’d worry about them rusting from the changing seasons. Happy stitching!

  2. Excellent set-up for quilt photos! I enjoyed seeing all your lovely quilts handing from your pergola.

  3. Oh, you should write up a tute on how you put this together and post it on Kathleen McMusing’s Tips & Tutorials linky party, which is the 22nd of each month! I need a pergola!

  4. Pergola quilt hanger, brilliant!!!!!! I have a pergola on my deck where I eat meals everyday I hang lanterns but never thought to hang a quilt; now all I have to do is get the clips to hang my quilts, thank you for the inspiration!

  5. This is such an amazing idea, Zenia! Now I’m missing the pergola we had at our last house. I loved seeing your beautiful, colorful quilt photos, too.

  6. That’s a GREAT set-up! I’ve been trying to explain to my husband what I’m looking for and this is almost exactly what I’m looking for! Now to find time for him to install it…

  7. Oh…Yes yes yes…Not only are you very clever…but Ii love your quilts…the Meadowland especially….OMG My eyes are going..I can barely see the type…I do have a pergola…I will see how it works..xo

  8. Wow, what an awesome quilt hanging/photography set-up!!! What’s your clearance, from top to bottom? Neat idea and carry-thru. And do I ever love your Meadowland!!! I’m with Wendy ⬆️ , tute, please! And I’m wondering your response to Gretchen’s question, can you leave the clips out year around?

  9. Great setup. A definite “shout out” to Dave for coming to the rescue. Now we get to see your beautiful quilts in all of their glory.
