This gorgeous backing fabric was supplied by J-Quilts, my longarm quilter, and the quilt sleeve was made with some of the left over fabric. I use a method for making the sleeve that was taught by Philippa Naylor, and this is hand stitched into place on the back of the quilt, taking care for the stitches not to go through to the front of the quilt. The full instructions for making the sleeve are in Philippa's book, Quilting in the Limelight. This just needs to have a bit more hand stitching to secure the sleeve in place and will be ready to hang on display in my local quilt shop, Kis Quilting Ltd in Ipswich.
