I'm hoping someone here can help me out....

I'm considering entering a small quilt in the county fair. I've never done this before and I have a question.

Should I put a label on the back as I normally would? I can't find anything in the rule book for the fair that says anything about it one way or the other.

Thanks

I know at our fair they don't want the creator indentified. The name is hidden on the entry tag, too. i'm entering one that will be given as a gift after the fair. I have the label made but will wait till afterward to slipstitch it on.

contact the fair office or dept. committee for clarification on rules

Yes put it on and then stitch some fabric over it to hide the label.

The easiest way is to put the label on then put painters tape (blue stuff) over the name to hide it. I wouldn't put a quilt in any competition without a label on it just for safety.

I would put a lable on it. At the local shows I have entered, a piece of masking tape was used to cover names on the back of the quilt. And since it is only there for a few days, no harm is done to the quilt.

Good luck!
peace :D

Without a label, it could end up going home with the wrong person. :D:D:D
