Don't forget to add a sleeve to your show quilt!

Origin of SLEEVE
Middle English sleve, from Old English slīefe; perhaps akin to Old English slēfan to slip (clothes) on, slūpan to slip, Old High German sliofan, Latin lubricus slippery
First Known Use: before 12th century ...

Overheard: an amusing conversation among some Fairholme members this week about their puzzlement as novice quilters at the very suggestion that a sleeve might be added to a quilt - how odd would that look? And just the one?

So here is a timely blog from Brenda Gael Smith for Fairholme members preparing quilts for our show in just 10 days, with a link to an excellent tutorial by Susan Brubaker KnappA “D” for Quilt Sleeves.
