How to make a quilt sleeve: PDF now available

Nearly all quilt shows require a 4" hanging sleeve for quilts exhibited, but a lot of beginning quilters struggle with this step. In July 2007, I posted directions for making a quilt sleeve on my blog, because my local guild was having its first quilt show, and many people asked me for directions.

I recently became aware that many quilters searching the internet for information on making a sleeve were coming to my blog. One woman even contacted me by phone today, asking if I had a printed version of my directions. So… I whipped up a PDF file with the directions, including photos. Feel free to print and distribute these directions, but leave my contact information on them, please!

To see my directions, click here and you will be directed to my blog post.
