What is a quilt sleeve and why do I need one?
Quilt sleeves are designed to slip a pole or rod through, and then hang the quilt in some kind of frame. The most common need for a quilt sleeve is a quilt show. The sleeve fabric can be anything you like, but often matches the backing fabric or is a fabric that looks nice to the eye. Creative sleeves can be fun and add to the beauty of a quilt. Your sleeve should be strong enough to hold the weight of the quilt so a light-weight lace, for example, would not work unless your quilt is small.

How to Make a T-Shirt Quilt A t-shirt quilt is a wonderful way to preserve lasting memories and is made up of t-shirts that are laid out in a pattern and sewn together. Some people will make a t-shirt quilt to give to a high school graduate using the school and event t-shirts collected by the student throughout the student’s time in school. Others have made t-shirt quilts out of old t-shirts of individuals serving in the military overseas or who have passed away as a way to help the children of these individuals feel close to their parents who are not around. The quilts go together quickly, making this a fast and easy project for preserving memories. Visit Ooshirts site at:
