I'm very close to finishing a quilt. All that's left to do is make the sleeve and label. Here are the steps I take to make a quilt sleeve.
Cut piece a fabric the width of quilt top and 8-1/2 long. Make 1" wide side hem (folded twice so that finished hem measures 1/2") and stitch into place
Fold down 2", press and BASTE in place 1/4" from fold
Fold sleeve in half with wrong sides together, stitch together using 1/4" seam allowance - remember to use a regular stitch length - (notice basted fold on left)
Now the sleeve is ready to be hand stitched to the back of the quilt top. Center the sleeve and place it 3/4" from the top edge. Once the sleeve is sewn to the quilt, remove the basting stitch from fold.
That's all there is to it!
