The Five-Minute Quilt Sleeve


Rushing out the door today to deliver quilts for a show.  Oh no!  
I forgot to put a sleeve on one.  
What to do?



Good thing my friend, Patty, gave me this idea.
Yup, it's a couple of shirt sleeves, quickly attached with safety pins. 
Wa la!

What a grand idea when a sleeve is needed for a quick photo or two (but not forever).

Thank you for sharing!!

So smart -- but I'm not sure I could have forfeited those gingham sleeves.
