How do you hang an on point quilt?

The lattice is actually more visible than I thought it would be, but now what do I do with it. I want to make it a wall hanging, but want to leave it on point as it is now. As the snowmen are seasonal, I want something that I can fold up when I am done with it. I have an idea, but am not sure what to use for it. Any ideas?

Brothers' Blocks done and new project

I have finally finished all my blocks for the two brothers quilts, so will start the laying out and sewing together shortly. First however as the season is coming up, I have been inspired by Garden Fence and had to try it for myself. The contrast for the fence is not quite as strong as I would have liked, but it will be a little 9 block seasonal hanging (on point if I can figure out how to hang it), so I regard it as learning experience. The fabric is all stash and has been for ages, so I am happy to find a home for (some) of it.
