I saw on line a really cute wall hanging of three sunbonnet sues dressed in prison sripes attached togeather with a chain and the caption was  "they touched the quilts at the quilt show"  Now, I can make on but I dont want to infringe on any leagality so if you know where I saw it could you please note here and I'll chase it down?

I think it was in or on the cover of Quiltmaker magazine.  I saw it on facebook and I think it was that magazine!

Yes, I remember seeing it on Facebook, and then there was a later posting saying they'd found the source.  When you asked about it, rather than trying to find it on Facebook again, I did a Google search for "they touched the quilts sunbonnet sue."  That took me to http://quiltinspiration.blogspot.com/2011/04/funny-sunbonnet-sue.html.

Well, I don't facebook and I can't find my last Quiltmaker so thats probably where I saw it.  I printed the photo and left it on the counter and my husband saw it and couldn't figure out the joke.  Dear man!!!

I know that you aren't supposed to touch quilts at the show, but what do you do if you see someone else touching them, who aren't supposed to?  I feel like I should tell them they aren't supposed to, but then I don't know if it is my place to say something . . . what do you do?

Love this sunbonnet sue!

i remind them not to touch the quilt. when i have sam with me i remind him in a loud enough voice not to touch the quilts.   he knows not to touch quilts and knows  that i am not talking to him.  if i had a quilt hanging, i would hope someone would butt in and ask them not to touch my quilt.

Dawn:
but what do you do if you see someone else touching them, who aren't supposed to? 

If there are gloved volunteers working the show, it can't hurt to explain to the unknowing person that he/she should ask the volunteer to turn the back out for him/her.  If there are no volunteers and there were no cheap gloves handed out at the entry, I don't know that I'd correct the person.  I truly think the show organizers should know that people want to see the quilting and/or labels on the back and should make arrangements for that to be possible.  What do others think?

I agree that the show organizers should make appropriate arrangements so that people can see the back of a quilt.  However, If they don't make appropriate arrangements I don't think people should be touching the quilts.  I wouldn't want people handling my quilt if it was hung in a show.

I have been to one show that encouraged you to touch the quilts.  I was almost afraid to touch them as old habits die hard.   Ginny

The local shows here have baskets of gloves to take if you think you may want to examine a quilt.  i like that.
