Join Quilt With Us
Kaye's quilting you tube showed me how to make hanging sleeve.. It took me long time before finding out how to make them.. Fear of it being complicated. Nothing to it.. She explains it really well.. Maybe Missouri quilt might have a you tube by now..
The easiest thing is to get one of those ready-made hanging sleeves you can usually find in your LQS, or if you have time, in a catalog. They come in cream or black. Like Janet, if I don't want it permanently on the quilt, I use a lightweight muslin, cut a little shorter than the width of the quilt and 8" wide. Narrowly hem the short ends and fold it in half lengthwise. Sew the long sides together leaving the seam on the outside, then press the resulting tube centering that seam on the back. Hand stitch both long sides to your quilt, placing the sleeve just below the binding. I have shown pretty large quilts with just a single continuous sleeve.
If I know I will be showing a quilt eventually, I make the sleeve from the backing fabric and attach it to the quilt before I put on the binding. This will be permanent.
