    Default what is a bed turning?

    There is a small quilt show in my area tomorrow and Saturday. On the schedule, bed turning at 1pm. What does this mean, I've never been to a show before. DD and I will be going Saturday.

    "A "Bed Turning" is a way of introducing quilters and non-quilters to the beauty of antique or unique quilts in an interesting and different way.

    Most appropriately presented at a quilt show or a guild meeting, a bed is brought in and quilts are placed on the bed. As each quilt is turned and held up for the audience, I describe the quilt, date the quilt, and give the story of the quilt. "

    Thanks! We'll definitely arrange to be there in time to see these quilts, I love things that have stories or a history attached to them.

    Before I looked it up online, I was wondering if they meant turning your mattress to keep it from getting lumpy.

    That was my first thought. Turn it and flip it every few months, and in the spring, take it out to air. In the winter... Fabreeze.
