Quilt Hanging System

I have a huge stairwell wall that goes from a cathedral ceiling to the basement and a large portion of the wall is visible to the main portion of the house. I have always wanted to hang a quilt (full size or larger) on it and then be able to change the quilt out for another when the whim strikes, but the logistics of hanging something on this wall have mystified me. Until now. I want this system.

Click on the logo and it will take you to the page with the system I want. 
The first step is to purchase some of this
so I can adhere a level horizontal string line to the wall from the entry way to the hallway at the height where the top of the quilt will hang. This line will also give me a visual so I can adjust the placement. This I can do by myself. Once I have the measurements from putting up the level string line, I can fill out the form and order my system.

When the system comes in, rental of one or two of these
for 17.95 each for 4 hours will, hopefully, make installation easier. That is if I coerce a couple of elves into helping.

That sounds like a great space to hang a quilt. Glad you've found a way to do it.

Are you familiar with the Hang It Dang It? http://hangitdangit.com/

They only use one nail and the quilts stay straight. My sister has several of them and loves them. Gotta love that they are made in Laramie, WY, too!
