Does my quilt need a hanging sleeve (rod pocket)?

Yes! All quilts in the show need a 4-inch hanging sleeve EXCEPT:

  • an Art Quilt Challenge
  • a donated Quilt of Valor that has NO Room or Section number on its ID card (distributed in September 2017)

Temporary sleeves must be securely basted at 2-inch intervals, preferably on the bottom and top of the sleeve.

Tallgrass Prairie Studio has a great tutorial on adding a permanent 4-in. hanging sleeve.

Want to see a video? American Quilter's Society has a YouTube video about adding a sleeve that includes a sleeve idea for very wide quilts.

Volunteer!
