Hello art quilters -- I am new to this and want to know how large the hanging sleeve needs to be for a small art quilt. Should it be big enough for a 1" dowel or will a smaller sleeve be sufficient?
It depends if it's for competition or not. If it's going to be exhibited widely, you will want to make a standard 4 inch sleeve. There's lots of places online with instructions for this kind of sleeve. Because you won't know what kind of hanging system they will use at the show, this is the best.
If it's just to hang in your home, make whatever size you like.
