Hanging sleeve directions

1. Cut a 13” wide fabric strip, cutting it 1” shorter than the top width measurement of the quilt. Hem each end, enclosing raw edges.

2. With wrong sides together and long edges even, stitch using inch seam allowance. Center the seam allowance on the back side of the sleeve and press. For the larger quilts the sleeve should be spilt in two leaving a 2” opening at the center of the sleeve of ease in hanging the quilt.

3. Center the sleeve along the top of the quilt with the seam allowance of the sleeve next to the quilt back. Attach the sleeve by stitching along both long edges. The sleeve will be narrower than the quilt but this allows a dowel to be inserted into the sleeve without showing.
