    What corner is quilt label placed?

    I think I have placed the label on wrong side (corner) being left handed. Where does it go? If quilt is facing you on wrong side, does it go on left corner? Thanks a bunch. I don't know why I don't know this by now.

    I am eager to learn the answer to your question. I,too, am left handed. I am sure I put at least half of my labels on the wrong corner. On the other hand, half on my labels are on the correct corner. Now, thanks to you, maybe I'll soon be able to place all labels correctly.

    I don't worry about it's location. My relatives have just asked that I place it at the bottom so that they can figure out which way is up or top and bottom.

    Wow, I don't think it really matters.

    It doesn't really matter and, actually, the way most people look for a label is from the front side, so turning over the bottom right corner is natural. That means a label on the bottom left corner when you're looking at the backside is just right. Don't sweat the small stuff; you're doing just fine.

    Any where you want it to go. I place mine on the back, usually lower right corner. I have seen some that were placed in the design on the front, such as baby quilts.

    I don't think it really matters either but I always put mine in the lower right hand corner as you are facing the back. Only because that's where I automatically look to be sure I've labeled it...

    I always put mine somewhere along the bottom edge, can be left, right or in the middle depending on the size of the label. Then I know which is the top and bottom of the quilt.

    It only matters if you are planning to put the quilt in a show. Some people put them in the middle. For show quilts, I put it in the lower right corner, only because that is the local standard and does not inconvenience the show staff.
