Preparing Your Quilt for a MLQG Exhibit

Now that you have your entry for the 2014 Exhibit nearly completed are you confused by how to get it ready for its big debut?  The final steps really aren't that complicated.  All quilts are required to have a hanging sleeve.  Quilts over 30" are required to have a 4" hanging sleeve and quilts less than 30" are required to have a split sleeve.  Each entry must have a label with the name of the quilt and the name of the entrant securely sewn to the back of the quilt, preferably on the bottom left corner.  Finally, inspect your quilt one last time!  Trim any stray threads, remove any chalk or marking lines, and use a lint brush to remove any dust or pet hair.  Now your quilt should be show ready!

Printable instructions for adding a hanging sleeve to your quilt can be found by clicking the "2014 Exhibit" tab at the top of this page.  If you prefer personal instruction, guild members are available to help with hanging sleeves or other entry issues each Wednesday from 10:00-2:00 at the Masonic Lodge in Wellsboro.  Any other questions about the exhibit can be directed to Betty W.-R., Exhibit Chairperson, or Susan Mc., Exhibit Co-Chairperson.
