Signature Quilt

384334949

In 2007, I joined a signature block swap. I finally got the blocks set and quilted. This was a fun swap in which to participate and I now have friends from all over the world. The block we used was a variation of a classic signature/album block.

This small quilt is just the perfect size to cover the window in my basement sewing room and it is fun to look up at it to rest my eyes from close-up work by focusing on something further away. 

I hope you have experienced the fun of a swap.

  2. Oh my, I've forgotten the siggies I received last year in my swap. Yippee, now I have something else to finish and quilt on my longarm. Now if only I can locate the blocks ...

  3. I have a similar quilt, love the variation on yours with the "split" block piecing above and below the siggies. I'm going to file this block idea away for future reference. How big is each block, 4"? What a perfect addition for decorating your sewing space.

  5. I have two signature/friendship quilts that I treasure more each year. I am glad that you put yours where you can enjoy it every day.

  6. I've got at least two packages of signature swap blocks. Haven't done anything with them yet. I tended to get carried away with swapping and forgetting that there is more work when I get the package back.

  10. What a great idea! especially during the winter and yucky spring with nothing to look at.

    as for your dryer sheets, I have been using Sun & Earth. no scent, no chemicals and they breakdown in the compost in 21 days! give them a try
