Jane Dunnewold has a new tutorial about how to prepare and use aluminum bars to display fiber artwork on her web site at: http://www.artclothstudios.com/userfiles/file/Aluminum%20Bar%20Tutorial.pdf

“Desert Prince” by Hollis Chatelaine

This is my piece that I purchased from Hollis Chatelaine a few years ago.  She used the aluminum bars across the top and across the bottom.  The quilt hangs straight and looks good with this type of hanging system.
