A quilt trademark of mine is to put a different color of binding, or an additional row of piecing, along the top edge of the quilt so you can easily identify which end is up. No stinky-feet end should go near anyone's nose!
I put a light strip on this one. It's easy to find the top edge in low light.
Here's an example of an added row. The delectable mountains say "here's the top edge."
This one had a much larger border on the bottom edge than on the top.
