Make Your Quilt into a Wall Hanging with a DIY Quilt Sleeve

Make Your Quilt into a Wall Hanging with a DIY Quilt Sleeve

Are you looking for a creative way to display your quilt? A hanging quilt sleeve is the perfect solution! This simple DIY project will transform your quilt into a wall hanging and can easily be completed in an afternoon.

In this blog post, we’ll show you how to add a quilt sleeve to your quilt so you can proudly display it on your wall. Let’s get started!

Supplies & Cutting

We’re making a quilt sleeve that will be about 4” tall. It’s suitable for most quilts, but if you plan to use this for a quilt show entry, check the quilt show guidelines beforehand because they usually have a specific size requirement. All you’ll need is some fabric (and you can decide if you’d like it to match the back of your quilt, like we’ve done here) but it won’t really matter because it’s on the back! Then it’s time to measure and cut the fabric for your sleeve.

In this tutorial, we’re adding the quilt sleeve before the binding goes on, so that it’s integrated with the quilt. Before the binding goes on, cut the quilt sleeve fabric 8.5″ wide by the width of your quilt minus ¾”. For instance, if your quilt is 40” wide x 60” tall, you would cut your sleeve fabric 8.5” x 39.25” (40” – ¾”).

Now that your fabric is cut to size, you’re ready to move on to sewing the sleeve!

We attached our quilt sleeve to the Apple Pie Quilt from the 2023 Liberty Box. It was made using Stateside by Sweetwater for Moda Fabrics.

How to Add a Quilt Sleeve to Your Quilt

1. Start by folding the sleeve in half, right sides together. Stitch both ends closed, making sure to backstitch at the beginning and end of your seam.

Note: Our stitching line was hard to see so we added some red stitches.

2. Then, turn your sleeve right side out and press the edge so it’s nice and flat. It’s ready to be attached to your quilt!

3. Lay your quilt out flat with the back facing up. Center the quilt sleeve along the top edge, and baste it to the quilt, with a quarter-inch seam. Use pins or clips to keep the sleeve in place while you stitch. The basting stitch will hold the sleeve in place while you attach the binding, effectively encasing the raw edge of the quilt sleeve within the binding. To baste turn your stitch length up to four or five or use the basting setting on your machine.

Here you can see the quilt sleeve ready for basting.  To make sure you could see the difference between our sleeve and quilt backing (which are the same fabric) we added a blue tint to the fabric. The fabric does not come in this shade.

4. Next, bind your quilt as usual, making sure that the edge of the sleeve on the back is included.

5. Once the binding is complete, you’ll attach the bottom edge of the quilt sleeve to your quilt. With the sleeve flat against the back, use pins to mark where the bottom edge is. Then, bring the sleeve edge back up about a quarter inch. Pin it, and then hand-stitch it in place. This extra room for a dowel rod will help the quilt hang straight. Be careful not to stitch through to the front of your quilt!

That’s it! Now you know how to add a sleeve to your quilt and hang it up. With just a few simple steps, you can transform your beautiful quilt into a stunning wall hanging! You can also watch how to add a wall hanging sleeve to your quilt in this video from the Fat Quarter Shop Youtube Channel.

  16. I have several wall hangings that I have added the hanging sleeve — the last was the Apple Pie and my backing and sleeve look just like yours except I cut that binding on the bias so I would have diagonal strips.

  17. I want to make a smaller Sewing Machine wall hanging. I got the Thimble Blossoms pattern, now I need to pick my fabrics and get started!

  19. The next quilt to get a sleeve will be a “landscape” quilt from a class that I took.

  20. I appreciate the information – I’ve done hanging sleeves previously and always like having reminder instructions. In the past I have forgotten to sew in the sleeve with the binding☹️

    1. Oh how fun! It’s been so long since I’ve made a hanging sleeve. It’s on a 34 x 34” piece of wall art in a southwest theme. Still attached and hanging evenly. I must have done a great job . Thank you so much for this great tutorial and opportunity .

  21. I now add a quilt hanger on most of my quilts. My first one was the Charming Christmas Tree quilt that I added a hanger to.

  22. My first quilt was a four block quilt sampler that I made for a class at a quilt shop. Of course, I was so proud and wanted to hang it in our living room. It has been replaced by other quilt hangings through the years, but I still have it and put it up in the rotation every once in awhile. It is a reminder of how far I have come in my quilting!

  23. Haunted halloween is going to be my first quilt,for sleeve. Thanks for the tutorial.

  24. My daughter has a great wooden quilter hanger with a shelf on top. I have made her numerous seasonal quilts that she hangs and decorates the shelf above it with the holiday. I have put sleeves on those quilts. The most recent one was a tulip quilt that I made and put a sleeve on! I

  25. I have a paper-pieced wallhanging that I made in a class. It needs to be quilted but once that’s done, I’ll be adding a hanging sleeve when I bind it. I already have a spot for it picked out in my new studio.

  26. Thank you so much for showing how to make a hanging sleeve, I think my “Stronger Together” qal quilt, definatley deserves a hanging sleeve to show off how beautiful it is. And thank you FQS for all your qal’s you share with us.

  27. I put a sleeve on the first quilt I ever made, an adorable house pattern made with redworks fabric. Then i quilted it to within an inch of its life, LOL. I had to find instructions on line for the sleeve.

  32. THANK YOU for sharing this information for a quilt’s hanging sleeve. This is slightly different from the way I have been making them for years and I like this approach very much. I hope to use this method on on the quilt that I will make with this adorable fabric Sweet Acres that is in the giveaway that I hope to win.

  33. I enjoyed this tutorial. One of the first quilts to which I added a sleeve was from an
    Eleanor Burns pattern in her 40th anniversary book – log cabin blocks with pieced blocks. I used all Moda grunge fabric purchase from the FQS. I had just joined the local guild and needed to enter at least one quilt into the guild’s show. I followed their directions but this was much easier to follow. Thanks

  34. Thank you for showing how this is done. I have never put a sleeve on a quilt before, but I plan to do one now. I have a Christmas panel that I was planning to use to make a quilt this year. I will add a hanging sleeve to it so that I can display it for the holidays.

  35. The very first quilt I made was a wall hanging. It was the Christmas in July quilt from 2019.

  36. I plan to add sleeves to all my quilts from now on! What not? You’ve shown us a very simple way to do it, and it won’t interfere with simply using the quilt if I decide not to hang it. Thanks for a simple and easy-to-understand tutorial!

  37. I will add it to the back of the Halloween Mystery quilt that I just finished. Thanks!!

  38. My sister gave me a quilt that I plan to hang. Should I take apart the binding on the top first? Thanks for the great tutorial!

  39. This is exactly how I make my hanging sleeves…first used it on a Christmas wallhanging in about 1997 or so. I still use that pretty quilt every year!

  40. The first quilt I’m going to do as a wall hanging is going to be my fall quilt that I’m working on

  41. I made a quilt of the 12 months of the year and put a hanging sleeve on it. It is hanging in my sewing room.

  42. I made a birthday wall hanging for my daughter this week and I’m up to a point where I could do this. I’m so glad I read your post

  43. Perfect timing! I was just getting ready to bind my Apple Pie wall hanging and wondering how to hang it. I had enough backing to make the sleeve. Thank you!

  44. My first sleeve was to the Sew by Row Quilt (Lori Holt). My next ones are going to be the Evergreen SAL going on now and the Haunted Halloween SAL we just finished up.

  45. Thank you so much for sharing this tip on hanging your quilt.😍 as a fairly new quilter ill take all the tips I can.I agar love gas and all the beautiful fabric. The service is superior!

  46. Great tutorial – I add sleeves when I can so I can display my quilts throughout the house

  47. My first quilted wall hanging was from a panel called “Secret Windows.” This was also my first time for straight-line quilting. Learned so much from this project!!

  48. Gosh, it was probably1983/84! We were stationed in Italy with no TV, and only my 1 year old daughter, library books and AFN radio to occupy my time while my husband worked shifts, many into the nights. I had a precut quilt kit I had ordered from Keepsake Quilting, in a range of blues, for a “Trip Around the World” doll quilt. I hand-stitched it in the evenings he worked, while listening to Radio Mystery Theater and plays on albums checked out from the library. It now hangs, from a sleeve, in the upper hallway of my home. Soon to follow, by machine, we’re my daughter’s quilt and myriad baby quilts for our friends.

  49. Thanks for the excellent pictorial. I am bookmarking this post so it’s easy to refer to when needed. The first quilt I’m going to attach a sleeve to is a Dresden quilt I am working on now. Perfect timing as I can attach to the quilt with the binding. Thank you FQS!

  50. I will be adding a sleave to a 4th of July wall hanging that I completed just prior to the holiday.

  51. Thank you. I will try this on a wall hanging I bought traveling in Alaska. I’m looking forward to seeing the finished project in my sewing room as a reminder of a great trip.

  52. Thanks for the excellent tutorial. I’ve learned so much for your tutorials over the year. I really appreciate them. My one and only quilt (there will be more) I added a sleeve to was a quilt my friend gave me. It is a small quilt I can either hang on the wall or use as a table mat. It’s red, black and white, and so cute.

  53. I love the Sweet Acres bundle, such beautiful colours … would make a lovely quilt.

  54. Just finished Stars and Stripes by Amy Smart. Now I can add a sleeve from your great tutorial and hang it while it’s still July. Woo Hoo!

  55. I add sleeves on all wall quilts, of course! But,in addition to sewing the top of the sleeve into the binding, if there is a border a couple inches down from the binding that is straight across, I sometimes pin the bottom of the sleeve just over the border and then stitch in ditch on the front ( very carefully!) through the quilt and the bottom edge of the sleeve. That way – no hand sewing!

  56. Such a great post! Hoping to do this with my Halloween wall hanging I just made with you guys.

  57. Nice and simple tutorial. Thank you.
    The first quilt I added a sleeve to, was a small quilted block featuring a dachshund, in honour of my doggy friend who had passed away.

  58. I am making a fall quilt from a panel and I think it will be a perfect wall hanging, especially since I now know how to do a hanging sleeve on the back.

  59. I will be making two of the Evergreen quilt along pattern and both will be Christmas gifts. Both will be able to hand on a wall.

  60. I am going to make your left over jelly roll strips quilt and it will be the first time I add a sleeve for hanging a quilt simply. Thank you kindly for all you give us in the way of information and support. FQS is the best in the industray that I know of at getting orders out quickly and I am grateful to you for all these bonus service items. Kindest regards!!

  61. I’ve been wondering how to do this forever! I would love to hang my mystery snowflake quilt from your Christmas mystery quilt 3 years ago! I’m excited to do it!!!

  62. My mom, who made hundreds of quilts during her lifetime, taught me how to make a quilt sleeve. She put a sleeve on almost every quilt she made. I usually add it after the quilt is finished, but I think I’ll start incorporating it before the binding from now on. I love to hang quilts in my home. Thank you FQS!

  63. I will be hanging my grandmothers red and white red work that she embroidered. I never knew she sewed quilts until I found it in her attic with a note saying she made it. Such a treasure for me.

  64. Too long ago to remember the quilt names! Have added many hanging sleeves over the years… nice instructions.

  65. Ok I love your all your great ideas and this one is going to be one of my favorites because I have trying to find a way to this for over a year and now I can hang my wall hangings properly, So thank you, thank you, thank you.

  66. I would like to do the sleeve on my new liberty box quilt. I need to get that one started soon, I’ve been working on other projects to get done. Thank You

  68. I’m working on a wall hanging quilt now. Using a Lori Holt pattern and using up some of my many scraps. Will be adding a quilt sleeve.

  69. Thank you for the information! I plan to add a sleeve to my Haunted Halloween wall hanging!

  71. The first quilt I added a hanging sleeve to was one I did many years ago. It was a maple leaf quilt pattern by Debbie Mumm. I was so pleased that it turned out OK and hung the quilt in my bedroom. Since then, I’ve added hanging sleeves to several finished quilts but I prefer to add them as I’m doing the binding.

  72. Thanks for the easy to understand directions and great pictures! I’ve never made a hanging sleeve before, but I’m going to give it a go on the Halloween Mystery QAL. Wish me luck!

  73. I have three quilts ready for binding and this will be the perfect finish. Thanks for the tutorial and giveaway opportunity.

  74. I’ve never made one with a hanging sleeve before… but I’ve got a lot of quilt tops just waiting to add one to!! Thanks for the info.

  75. Thanks for giving me the push I needed to get the sleeve on the back of the horse quilt I made for my niece. The binding is already on it but this gave me just the right amount of info I needed to get myself in gear instead of procrastinating another minute!! I can always count on Kimberly and her crew!!! Thanks a bunch!!! -Betsy

  76. My first quilt to turn into a wall hanging was a Double Wedding Ring quilt many years ago. Appreciated the refresh on making a hanging sleeve! I plan to turn the Evergreen Mystery quilt into a wall hanging. Thanks again for the tutorial!

  78. This was very helpful!! I’ve just finished a quilt using our three grandkids art work and wanted to display so that will be my first quilt sleeve attempt!

  79. The first quilt I turned into a wall hanging was one my son won in a raffle at his school’s Holiday Craft Fair. I think he was 8 or 9 at the time. It’s still hanging on my family room wall many years later!

  80. Super useful tutorial! I did not know how to make a hanging sleeve and those quilts lose half the design being put over a dowel rod on a quilt hanger. I plan to put a sleeve on my Apple Pie wall hanging quilt and my Haunted Halloween and Evergreen Mystery quilt – actually all of the forthcoming wall quilts WILL have the helpful hanging sleeve!

  81. I am planning to make a Christmas hanging quilt using a pieced bordered quilt panel

  82. I’ve never made a sleeve, so thanks so much for posting this. Now I know I can do it.

  83. Probably the first wall hanging quilt I made was a little houses quilt. That must’ve been 15-20 years ago! I think this way to add a sleeve is very easy. You just have to plan ahead!

  84. Thank you easy instructions! I will use it on a Halloween witch wallhanging!

  85. I just finished a class sample for foundation paper piecing. Normally I make smaller quilts for my grandkids but this one I am going to hang in my sewing room. I am going to use a hanging sleeve to hang it.

  86. I am currently sewing the Brightly quilt pattern by Cluck Cluck Sew. I will definitely sew a hanging sleeve on the back of this quilt for hanging in my living room!

  87. My first quilt with a hanger was actually a holiday banner that I made to hang in a small rack-same concept just smaller. Thank you for the tips.

  88. The first 2 quilts that I plan to put a sleeve on are Haunted Halloween & Evergreen Mystery. I’ve never added a sleeve to a quilt before, but you’ve made it look simply easy to do.
    My plan is to learn this so I can put sleeves on many quilts going forward so I can hang them throughout my home.
    Thank you FQS!!!

  89. My first wall quilt was a pattern by Eleanor Burns of a Christmas Tree using log cabin blocks. This was when I first started quilting so I didn’t know about sleeves so I hung it with straight pins pushed into the wall. I have several wall quilts ready to be quilted right now and I have plans to make sleeves and hang them by Christmas.

  90. I’m going to add a sleeve to the Sparrows quilt I just finished. I think it will make a great wall hanging!

  91. Hi, I’m working on a Christmas WallHanging Quilt this week! The sleeve I will attach soon is of the same small flower print that I used for the binding! So attractive ! It was a snap to do following FQS’s video on YouTube! Thanks for sharing!

  92. The first quilt I will try this on will be the Evergreen SAL. The first wall hanging quilt I did was last year’s Halloween SAL. I used leftover fabric and made simple straps on the back to hang up.

  93. Thank you for the easy instructions. My first quilt to have a hanging sleeve was a Santa and Trees wall hanging that I finished last year after it sat around as a UFO for about 15 years, It is primitive, but finally got on the wall. I look forward to using your instructions with a Fall quilt this year.

  94. I think my first quilt to get a sleeve will be a quilt I’m working on for Christmas. It has lots of animals and trees and I think it could stay up longer than just Christmas so I’m looking forward to trying this out on this quilt.

  95. This is such a wonderful and informative company. I would love to win 😍😍😍

  96. My first quilt I hung was a very small apple that used black bias tape around the edge of the red apple . It was only about 8 inches square and I used the little squares that was folded in half in the corners with a wooden dowel between the corners. This was maybe 25 years ago. I was so proud of it.

  97. Hi Kimberly thanks for the sleeve info. I’m going to put one on the Owl-O-Ween mystery quilt. I just loved doing it and it’s the perfect size ! thank you❤️

  98. Ma première courtepointe avec manchon pour accrochage est une couronne de Noël. J’ai découvert vos tutoriels et j’adore. Merci Kimberley.

  99. The first court, I’m going to turn into a wall hanging is one of those sew samplers in the last month or two I haven’t decided which one yet

  100. Hi Kimberly,

    The first wall hanging I put a sleeve on was your Ultimate Beginner Quilt. I chose eight blocks and made 2 x4 long quilt in Amish inspired colors with a black background. I quilted each block with its own design. My husband loves this one but it was so much fun to make, I know I will make it again in other colors. Thanks for all the inspiration!

  101. The next quilt I’ll add a hanging sleeve to is a dream big panel. I love custom quilting those panels.

  102. That is great. I made a tee shirt quilt for my friend who’s so passed away young. He was an avid athlete so there were many sport shirts. She just called and asked me if I could make it so she could hang it. Since it is already finished I will undo the top binding so I can put the sleeve in( think it will look better done the way you say) and then just redo according to instructions. Thank you for all the good ideas you are always giving us.

  103. I want to make an airplane design quilt and turn it into a narrow wall hanging for my grandson.

  104. Now that I know how to make the quilt sleeve, I can’t wait to use it on the Christmas Tree mini quilt I am making for Christmas. It will look so nice hanging on my wall. Thanks for sharing the instructions and demo.

    1. Hi Mary there is not, but you might be able to print the webpage and save it! Hope this helps 🙂

  105. I love the quilt i’m working right now. It is Spring Mystery Quilt by Edita Sitar and it is perfect to hang on the wall!

  106. My first hanging sleeve I put on a quilt was for the Haunted Halloween and it turns out great! I can’t wait to hang it up!

  107. I have a Christmas quilt that I’ve always wanted to put a sleeve on and was I sure how to do it. Thank you for clear directions!

  108. We are buying a new house and it has a big blank wall that I can put season quilts on display. This sleeve will be a great way to display my quilts. I am working on Thanksgiving and Christmas quilts to be displayed. Thank you

  109. I add sleeves to almost all my quilts – even bed quilts if there is a chance I might want to display them on a wall one day. My next project is a large and long table runner with 5 Christmas stockings – I think I will hang it above my fireplace mantle.

  110. The 4th of July Sew Sampler Box quilt will be my first quilted wall hanging that will be showcased in my dining room.

  111. I don’t remember my first wall-hanging with a sleeve but I made a lot of snowmen quilts that have sleeves on them.

  112. I think I would like to add that to any quilt I would be keeping. Like some seasonal quilts. I could just change them out for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc.

  113. I’m finishing up a carpenter’s star wall hanging that I will put this type of sleeve on.

  114. I made my son a periodic table quilt and I will do this so he can hang it on the wall.

  115. I’m fairly new to quilting and started during Covid. I’ve turned a guest room into a sewing room and need some wall hangings. I’ve decided to do a bird and now know how I can hang it! Thank you, perfect timing!

  116. In Feb., I made Moda Love Charm Quilt (32” star wall hanging). Recently found the backing material I wanted, so adding the sleeve is now on my “to do” list before summer is done. Thanks, FQS!

  117. The first quilt sleeve we did was for a kaleidoscope stained glass quilt. My husband and I made it together. We had a lot of fun doing this together

  118. I made an American flag quilt as a wall hanging. I put it on my front door every July.

  119. My very first quilt (in 1989) was a small wallhanging and the ladies in my quilt circle taught me how to make a sleeve exactly like the method you showed today. It’s a great way to show your quilts and all my quilts that are not bed quilts get this type of finishing on them.

  120. My very first walk hanging is going to be the Liberty box! After serving his country for 29 years in the Army! My son has retired and I thank him and every veteran that served, it is a debt we can never repay! This flag is going to his home along with a quilt of valor ♥️ I love the USA and the people that have fought for our freedom!

  121. Nice instructions on sewing shut and then turning it. Why I didn’t think of that myself I don’t know. I love quilts hanging all over my house and have for years. I use curtain roads, dowels, decorative hangers, metal arms from antiques, etc with a sleeve. Thanks for the post!

  122. I recently purchased a couple of Kim Deihl’s mini quilt kit. I’ll now be making a sleeve on the back to display them in my sewing room. This tutorial is perfect timing!

  123. I don’t remember my first wall hanging that I made, there have been so many!! What I learned here will be a game changer for me. I would turn the short ends under a quarter inch twice on each end and top sew the seam. After folding in half longwise, attach as you describe. It made two openings for the hanging rod which made no sense, now I have a great solution!! Thanks!

  124. I will add this hanging sleeve on a patriotic LoneStar wall hanging I made for my son as soon as my long armer is finished with it!!! He will love it!!!

  125. Thank you for showing us how to add a quilt sleeve, the instructions are very clear and well written, just like all of Fat Quarter shop instructions are. I’ll give this a try on my next wallhanging quilt.

  126. My first quilt wall hanging was Stitchin” Addiction. I have that hanging in my sewing room. I just last year did a temperature quilt that is a wall hanging also.

  127. I have not done one yet, so I’m going back to the recent Halloween wall hanging and do that. Then I’ll do Evergreen. Thanks Fat Quarter Shop for being such a good place to learn and shop!

  128. I mostly make small quilts & wall hangings, so have made many sleeves! But I didn’t know that you are supposed to bump the bottom folded edge up 1/4 inch!

  129. I have never used a quilt sleeve before, but your instructions make it so easy and I have just added quilt hanging hardware to each side of my bed, so I will be using your instructions to hang my quilts. Thank you so much.

  130. My first quilt that I turned into a wall hanging was Witch’s Night Out! Thanks for the tutorial!

  131. This tutorial could not have come at a better time!! I just finished (yes, finally, 2 years later) my Sew Happy “free from FQS” Quilt pattern by Lori Holt! I plan to hang it in my crafty room up high on a wall. I didn’t know how I was going to do it …but now I do!! Thanks, Kimberly and all at FQS!

  132. My first quilt was a memory wedding quilt for my son and his now wife. The bride’s mother had called me 4 months before the wedding, asking if it would be completed by the wedding, so it could be held over the bride and groom at the wedding, traditional for the Jewish faith. It was a push, but I had purchase a quilt sleeve, and had the quilter add it to the back. It now proudly hangs in their living room wall! Thanks for your directions so now I can make my own. I so appreciate all your ideas and never miss a video, Kimberly.

  133. I will use the evergreen mystery quilt a long to put a sleeve on. I can’t wait to see it hang on my wall.

  141. I have actually made several hanging sleeves on small and medium sized wall hanging quilts. The first one I made was for a wall hanging that went over my couch. The quilt had several ‘firsts’ with a variety of techniques that I tried, including mitered corners, a label, and a hanging sleeve! I was proud to hang it in my front living room.

  142. Perfect timing! I have entered a quilt in our fair for the first time ever and I have to have a sleeve. I willbe adding one to my Moda Blockheadmade from Butte4cup and Bloom. Kinda nervous 😊

  143. I’ve never made a sleeve for a quilt. These instructions seem easy to follow so I’m anxious to try it on a quilt I’m making for my husband. It is called “A Cabin By The Lake.” It is such a pretty pattern I want the sleeve in case we decide to hang it part of the time. Thank you.

  144. The first quilt I made into a wall hanging was a Christmas quilt by Art to Heart.

  167. My first quilt hanging was made in the first class I ever took. The class was offered in our towns Community Ed program. It was an Apple themed one ad it was all done with templates and sewn/quilted by hand. I learned a ton of technique and think everyone should take a hand pieced quilting class.

  200. I have a quilt that my sons great-grand mother made for him, over 50 years ago, It is the perfect quilt for this project. It has never been used but it would be a lovely gift for him, now that he is grown and has an appreciation for family history.Oh yeah, I would love to win the give away.

  227. My first quilt to get a hanging sleeve will be my Sew Sampler Barn Block Quilt. It is hanging on a curtain rod with clips but it seems to hang wavy, even though it is not, I think the sleeve will help it straighten out, or at least that the plan and hopes.

  252. Great tutorial. Saves time sewing the sleeve raw edges at the same time you are put on the binding. I also love that you included the hint about moving the bottom of the sleeve up a quarter inch. This gives a little slack in the sleeve and allows the quilt to hang smoother.

  253. I think I will be trying thison the Revel quilt I just finished. It is a big quilt but I think i will try it any way. I have been wanting to add a sleeve on a quilt for a long time. Thanks for the info. I am definitely going to try now

    My fingers are crossed it will work out!

  255. I’m going to make the flag quilt from the show sampler box my wall hanging. Normally I just use text to put up a quilt but this is gonna be so nice for none of that show.

  266. I am new to quilting but have trying my hand at a few patterns.
    The first quilt pattern I purchased was a Quilt Fox Design called Farmhouse Cross. It is a wall hanging size (46″ x 60″). Before receiving the pattern, I made a bible cover using one-inch pieces and how I thought the pattern worked. While it was nice, it was a hot mess. After that, I became avid fan of YouTube, including your channel. I finished my first attempt at the actual pattern and I am very pleased. There are many mistakes, but I treasure the quilt. I just read your post and plan to add a sleeve to attempt number two.
