Yes! The quilts caught my eye first thing too! So I took pictures to show you how they are hung ---it’s pretty ingenious actually, for ease of hanging and removal.
First of all, the building we were in is the Jacksonville Center for the Arts. The Jacksonville Center is a community arts center in Floyd, Virginia, just miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway. The quilts rotate in and out and are part of the regular art displays and galleries. When class isn’t in session with the guild, this multi-purpose room is used for many things, and people can come and go and view the quilts as well as other art housed in the center.
From what I can tell, the frames are 4 slats of wood…..the quilts are clamped on with bulldog clips. The whole thing is held to the wall by hooks and eyelets ---when the bottom hooks are let loose, the frame hangs straight away from the wall for ease in placing the quilt in the frames, or pinning smaller quilts to the black backgrounds that provide a larger spot for them.
This is Sallie’s beautiful string quilt ---
And here are some of the others:
Side view of how the quilts billow away from the walls on their frames ---think of sails on a ship!
Blurry shot of the method to hold the frame together.
Clips along the top, the width of the frame is adjustable somewhat to fit the quilts.
Beautiful scrap stars!
Subtle pastel toned paper pieced blocks depict mountain life.
These blocks were beautifully stenciled!
I’m not sure how often the quilts circle out to be replaced with new ones the members have made, but it’s a living advertisement for a very active guild!
If anyone else wants to know how the particulars of hanging quilts on slanted walls this way is done, perhaps you can contact the folks at the Jacksonville Center and they can put you in contact with someone for more information. I thought the way they hang these was ingenious!
