    I have never seen this method of adding a hanging sleeve to a quilt and I want to share it with you. Scroll past the binding info.

    I have seen this method before, but never used it. I was afraid it'd "stretch" the corners, but those triangles are much bigger than the ones I've seen in the past, so that might just work. Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks for the link. I am going to use this method on some wall quilts I have in the works now. So much easier that what I have been doing.

    I started this a few months ago. The trick is to go a little farther than 1/3 the width of the top. They hold up great and never fall off anymore.

    This is new to me. Looks like a great idea and something I need to try.

    I subscribe to this site and just read about this method yesterday....as a newbie to quilting, but, a sewer since childhood, I find this very dooable. I will try it the next time I make a wall hanging.
