    Hanging Sleeve

    Do you make a hanging sleeve the same length as the width of the hanging or slightly smaller? The hanging that I am making will be 48 inches wide finished. So do I make the hanging sleeve 48 inches?

    I make mine 2"-4" less than the finished quilt width.

    So for your quilt - 44"-46" wide, and centered on the back.

    Here's a thread from a couple of weeks ago with a bunch of links on making sleeves:

    I make it slightly smaller so it doesn't show from the front.

    Usually, I make mine 2-4 inches smaller. If you make it much larger, it will show on the ends and if you make it much smaller, the ends of the quilt will droop.
