Created by a quilt shop owner and teacher, the Quilters Hangup® eliminates much of the time involved in hand-crafting hanging solutions for your treasured quilts and art work. The patented gusset feature of the Quilters Hangup® allows your quilt or artwork to hang flat... without the time and frustration involved in creating it yourself! This 3 yard sleeve is easy to install and works beautifully every time. The quilt sleeve is made from unbleached natural muslin and dyes beautifully!

Instructions:

1) Measure width across the top of the quilt from side to side. 

2) Lay the quilt sleeve out and cut sleeve length to 1” less than the measurement of the quilt top width. 

3) Turn each end of the sleeve in ¼” toward the inside of the tube and press with hot iron, then turn in again ¼” and press again

4) Top stitch the circular hem to finish off both ends. (Do not sew the sleeve ends closed, you should still have a tube of fabric)

5) FOR QUILTS WITH A BINDING THAT HAS NOT YET BEEN ATTACHED

With the gusset or “v-shaped” pleat running along the top edge of the sleeve, center the sleeve across the top of the back side of the quilt, down about 1/8” from the top edge. Ensure the colored seam on the back of the sleeve is lying on the quilt back, so not to show. Pin in place until attached. 

Hand or machine stitch along the top edge of the sleeve, ensuring that you are stitching only the back side of the “v-shaped” pleat to the quilt. The front or protruding side of the “v-shaped” pleat is where the rod will be inserted. Also, be sure to keep the seam attaching the sleeve within ¼” of the top edge of the quilt. This will ensure seam coverage by the binding.

6) FOR QUILTS WITHOUT A BINDING, OR BINDING HAS ALREADY BEEN ATTACHED

With the gusset or “v-shaped” pleat running along the top edge of the sleeve, center the sleeve across the top of the back side of the quilt, down about 1 inch or less from the top edge. Ensure the colored seam on the back of the sleeve is lying on the quilt back, so not to show. Pin in place until attached.

Hand stitch the top edge of the sleeve to the quilt, ensuring that you are stitching only the back side of the “v-shaped” pleat to the quilt. The front or protruding side of the “v-shaped” pleat is where the rod will be inserted. The stitching should go through to the batting only, ensuring not to stitch through to the front of the quilt, as it may show.

7) Hand stitch the lower edge of the sleeve to the quilt backing, and if you want, stitch down only the back side of the ends of the sleeve that are touching the quilt backing. This will eliminate the possibility of inserting the rod behind the sleeve by accident.

A sleeve may also be attached to the lower, back edge of larger quilts to keep the quilt hanging flat along the bottom as well.

You are now ready to insert the rod for hanging your beautiful quilt or wall hanging. The sleeve may also be used to display rugs, tapestries, and other fabric wall art. 

Note: This sleeve has been designed to meet the required regulation size of 4” finished for all quilt shows. The patented gusset feature allows the quilt to hang flat.
