Thanks to Suzanne Irving who quilted our “Past meets Present” quilts. Donated  tops were transformed into “new quilts” by  Suzanne Irving’s expert hands and are now  ready to use! Suzanne continues her interest in rescuing vintage quilt tops so please contact us if you have items to donate.

This year grants were awarded to El Rio Health Center Foundation, St. Elizabeth’s Health Center, Arizona Oncology Foundation, Bag It! and Tucson Cancer Conquerors.  Congratulations to the successful grant recipients and thank you for the work you do with people in our communities in the fight against these cancers!

How to Make a 4” Hanging Sleeve

  1. Once your quilt has been quilted measure the width of your quilt. Cut a strip of fabric that long less 2 inches and about 9 inches wide.
  2. Hem both ends of the strip.
  3. With the WRONG sides together, sew the strip into a long tube.
  4. Press the sleeve flat with seam running down the center of the sleeve.
  5. Lay the sleeve on the back of the quilt with the seam facing the quilt. Position the sleeve about ½ inch from the top of the quilt.
  6. Whipstitch the top and bottom edges of the sleeve to the back of your quilt, being sure to leave the ends open so a hanging rod can be inserted.
  7. Another option would be to sew the sleeve lengthwise with wrong sides together and attach it to the top before the binding is attached.
