Default Fundraising quilt for a community school in Africa

I've been so busy making this quilt especially since I unpicked all the more formal kind of quilting in favour of that which I think compliments the fabric. It's been a long task but I think I'm pleased-ish with the final results. The quilt is going to be displayed at my daughters school until the end of the summer term and is to be raffled to raise funds for a school, my daughter and eleven of her classmates will be helping to build this summer. image.jpgimage.jpgimage.jpgimage.jpg

I need to make a hanging sleeve for the quilt. Any advice on fabric to use and how to attach it in such a way as to make it easy to remove when needed. Thank you.
