I Have My Hang Ups...

I love the extra large, heavyweight, hangers sold in three packs from Target. Because of the added width and superior strength they are absolutely perfect for holding a folded, full-sized quilt top and it's backing while waiting their turn to be quilted. In my haste a few weeks ago I accidentally picked up a pack of heavyweight hangers that were the wrong size for this quilt holding purpose. These are still strong and substantial, but aren't wide enough; they now reside in our hall closet for heavy winter coats. This photograph shows the two for comparison. Yes, I have my hang ups for sure... and now, in two sizes!

Life is Good!

You're so organized! (I wish that would rub off on me!!)

Love your batik BOM :)

That sounds like an excellent way to store the tops. I'll be on the look out for the XL hangers.

I love the regular old plastic hangers like clothes come on at the department store for my closet but my husband hates those. In his closet I use those like you showed (the smaller size). But that's only because I haven't seen the bigger ones! I'm definitely going to have to make a trip to Target to check those out. :) blessings, marlene

I like Target's plastic hangers with the skirt/pants alligator clip things -- they are perfect for holding sets of completed blocks for my Civil War Tribute BOM quilt. Actually, there's a LOT at Target (or WalMart) that I like for quilting applications.

Oh, those look just right for tops. Wish I didn't have to hang any up, but tops don't quilt themselves....
