My Signature Block quilt grows! May 24 2016, 0 Comments
I've been obsessed lately with big quilts, with small pieces… Last September, I started gathering signature blocks from any quilters I know… And will continue to ask for them when I teach or lecture etc…
So now I realized, I missed a bunch of people this past year that I'd like to have in my quilt...
Have you ever taken class with me?
...or my come to my lecture?
or met me somewhere along the way,
or not even met me but want to contribute a tiny block?
I'd love to get a signature block from you, for a quilt I'm making…
Pass it on, ask your quilter pals...
cut TWO - 1.5" X 3.5" strips
A SOLID COLOR
NO PRINTS OR HAND DYES PLEASE!!!!
Please make it this size, or I can use your block.
cut ONE - 1.5" X 3.5" strip
of WHITE for signature
Sew them together, press seams open
….and sign, (fabric pen) Pigma Microns are great!
Keeping your signature at least a 1/4"
in on the sides,
so it doesn't get cut off in the seam allowance…
**I am trimming these blocks down smaller, you don't have to worry about doing that.
If I came to your guild, can you ask your peeps and gather some blocks for me from the members?
There is no deadline…. this quilt will just grow and grow…
Putting all my happy memories all in one place. :-) NOTE: I want to be able to use all the blocks coming in, so if your block is TOO SMALL OR TOO LARGE, I can't make it fit in the quilt… PLEASE NO HAND DYES!!! If I don't know where they are, they will bleed all over the quilt! NO cherrywoods, NO hand dyes… ***If you do not have a solid color, just send me the white strip 1.5" by 3.5" long, with your signature, and I can add the solid. Thank you! The quilt is looking so great so far!!!
