Tuesday Archives #31: HST & Hanging Sleeve Tips

Welcome to the linky party that let's you rejuvenate your old quilting/sewing posts! 
(Check over in my right margin for the list of  our October themes)

Val's Quilting Studio
This week is all about skimming through those archives and finding quilts 
that showcase your Half Square Triangles and How you Hang your Quilts. I found a wonderful archive to highlight today...it's our blogging buddy Deana, from Dreamworthy Quilts! Be sure to grab yourselves a highlighted button today as you've earned it after finding those "gazillion HST's" you  shared today!

Wowsa! Check out Deana's post here at Dreamworthy Quilts:
(Beautiful quilts that were certainly a labor of love!)


Okay, I have to admit, I've never made a hanging sleeve in my life! With that said, I have a lot to benefit from today's linky party don't I! LOL! I've just always done this:


  1. I recognize Deana's Star Crazy quilt. I started that BOM, too, but only got about half way through. I had enough blocks done to make a throw as a wedding gift and a small wall hanging to keep. If you are a Farmer's Wife dropout, I'm a Star Crazy drop out!

  2. I'll be interested in the hanging tips too. I don't make sleeves on my quilts I hang, but on those I sell I do and I don't know if I am doing it right or not! I make mine in 2 parts so there is open space in the middle so they only have to put one nail in the wall. Now I can't even take a pic right now as all mine are out at craft shows!

  3. I had done a sleeve some years ago to hang a quilt, it was easy but there was a special technique that I don't remember... let's see what everybody is doing! Thank you Val!

  4. Hooray! I was featured by the famous "Valerie"! Thanks Val! I needed a reminder about this quilt so I can "git 'er done".

    I wish I had time to write about the hanging sleeves I do with pictures - sorry!

  5. I hang my quilts the same way you do Val since most of mine aren't meant to be hung at all. I just like the way they look on the wall . I stopped putting hanging sleeves on the back when I stopped putting my quilts in shows, too much trouble. I'm always looking for a better way to hang a quilt so I'm interested to see how others do this.

  6. I hate to make hanging sleeves. I use a variety of other ways, including yours to hang my quilts.

  7. I rather like the way you hang your quilts much easier tan making a sleeve then trying to get the hooks level on the wll so they hang straight

  8. I like your approach to hanging quilts. It makes it easy to change them out.


I have to admit, your comments make me smile! Thanks for sharing and for letting me know you stopped by. I Hope your day is awesome!
