Alzheimer’s Quilt Donation

Good Morning!!!!. Well it was morning when I started this blog. I had some problems so now it is the afternoon. My husband Paul has had the crud this week. So we have been hibernating. You know if you take medicine it takes 14 days to get over and if you don’t it takes 2 weeks.

I have been clearing my desk and working on projects in my studio. One of the projects is a small quilt for the Alzheimer’s Art Quilt Initiative. The quilts are no larger than 9″ x 12″. here is the one I am sending. It is a block from a class I used to teach. It made a pretty little quilt to donate. 
While working in the Alzheimer’s booth at Quilt Festival I noticed the greatest way to make a sleeve for these small quilts. I thought I would share it with you here. You can two squares 2 12″ x 2 1/2″. Then press them into a triangle. Next, before you put your binding on the quilt place the raw edges along the sew line. Sew the two squares to each of the top corners along seam line.sides, That’s all there is to it.
Place a small dowel rod in the pockets and you are ready to hang your quilt. I put a pencil in mine. Saved a trip to the hardware store.
Till next time keep quilting. Linda

  1. Oh my gosh you have solved my doll quilt hanging problem! With a tiny sleeve they were all different lengths, but this way allows me to place two small nails on the wall and no matter the size it will catch the nails! thanks a million!!


  2. Thanks for the great tip. You and Becky always come up with helpful suggestions. And, loved the little quilt. I actually recognized some of the leaf fabrics as I have them also. Thanks again for the great idea.
