    a bed turning is when several quilts are layered on a bed, in this case it was a beautiful antique 4 poster bed. one at a time the quilts are taken away to reveal the one below. we discussed each quilt as it was removed.
    it is so nice to see the quilts on a bed. after all thats the way they were meant to be seen. right?
    several of the quilts were very old and we discussed the era and in many cases we all speculated about the age because in the old days nobody signed their quilts.
    it was the highlight of the quilt show.
