Our long time school secretary announced today that she was leaving to take a better paying, less stressful job. She is truly the heart and soul of our school. Her last day will be Oct. 3 so I have no time to waste. You all are so generous with your suggestions. Does anyone know a fast, easy signature quilt pattern? Thanks so much to all of you.
Lenette: I was wondering if you would share the amount of fabric needed for this project, the completed size, what type of fabric pen used, and any other hints if possible. Thank you!
Sister, you and I are both crazy quilters. Here are some suggestions I would make now that I've done this quilt:
That's about all I can remember for now. If you can find another person to help you sew the squares together that would really help move your project along. Especially a stay at home mom or retired teacher who could sew them during the day when you're at work. Oh ..... I do remember I wanted to do more quilting on it but I couldn't because it would have made the messages difficult to read. I thought it better to be able to read all the good wishes. Thanks for asking my help. Good luck with your project and welcome to QCA.
Yes, we must be crazy quilters. Thank you very much for answering me so quickly and for giving great suggestions. I found some fabric today that I think will do nicely. Our school colors are green, white, and black.
The fabric store was out of black micron pigma pens, so I will probably head to Joann's Fabric tomorrow. Washing, drying, ironing, and cutting fabric is on the list of things to do tonight. :-)
Looking good Lenette. Nice masculine school themed fabric. Be sure to take a picture when your finished. We would love to see your end result.

Can you share the pattern with me for Hugs and Kisses?
Hi Lmyer, I'd be glad to share the pattern but you'll have to give me a couple days to research it. The finished quilt is in my gallery. It's the yellow and blue signature quilt. I'll get back to you very soon. Hope you have lots of time to make the quilt. Mimi
Have you considered adding some school pictures, kids, staff, etc. That could be fun. You could do rails, then a picture, more rails, and so forth.
Here is the pattern I used. I can remember if I made the block 4 or 6 inches but the first one on this site is the one I made. Then I arranged them in the pattern you see in the quilt. Good luck, https://ivoryspring.wordpress.com/2010/06/16/personalization-ideas-for-signature-blocks/
