Hanging Two Ways

I never know which way to hang this type of quilt, one that is long and skinny. Should it go horizontally or vertically?

I guess it depends on the space where it is on display and how you feel about the design.

So I’ve come up with a solution for art quilts of this disposition. Hang it two ways!

It requires two hanging sleeves on the back, one for a horizontal rod for the horizontal position and one for vertical for when you want it hang in in a narrower space.
