How to Make a Hanging Sleeve

Cut a strip of fabric 9 inches by the width of your quilt minus 1½ inches.  Turn each short end under ¼ inch twice and machine stitch.  Sew the long edges together with a ¼ inch seam,  Press the seam open.  Center the sleeve at the top of the quilt back with the seam toward the quilt and one fold barely touching the sewn edge of the binding.  Hand stitch the top and bottom long edges and under layer of the ends, making sure the top layer is open to accommodate a hanging rod.
