Last night I (for the first time) turned in quilts to the local county fair.
The woman checking in the quilts gave me this big lecture about the location of my labels. She said it had to be in the lower left corner, so the judges would know which way was up when they hung the quilt.
The label that was on a diagonal really threw her for a loop! I laughed and told her I like to mix things up!
She again explained how if the lable isn't in the lower left corner, they may not know how to hang it up. Now, I was thinking, if they could read the label it should give them a clue (only the 1out of 3 was on a diagonal, the rest were strictly horizontal).
Finally, I just said "well, they are all portraits, so if the kids are standing on their heads, you have it upside down!"
It was pretty funny! This lady is from my guild (I am sure she didn't recognize me), and seemed to be sort of overwhelmed by it all. It took about 25-30 minutes to check in 3 quilts.
