Directions for 4” Permanent Sleeve
This sleeve is applied at the same time as the binding. Cut a strip of fabric 8 1⁄2” wide and about 2” shorter than the width of your quilt. For example, a 70” strip for a quilt that is 72” wide. Hem the ends and fold the strip in half, lengthwise, with right sides out. Place raw edges of the sleeve along the unfinished top edge of the quilt and pin to the quilt back, as you’re pinning the binding to the quilt front. Stitch through all the layers. Blind stitch the binding over the stitching line on the quilt back, then blind stitch the bottom, folded edge of the sleeve to the quilt.
Directions for 4” Temporary Sleeve
With this method, you apply the sleeve after the binding has been finished. Cut a strip of fabric 8 1⁄2” wide and 2” shorter than the width of the quilt. Hem the ends and sew into a tube. Turn right side out. Hand stitch one edge of the sleeve just below the binding. Leave a bit of slack when sewing the other edge.
