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.

Quilter's Cache has lots of blocks, I'd look there first.

The quickest one I have done is a simple Rail Fence using white as the center strip.

Hi quilting friends, 

Well after working all day teaching elementary aged kids and every night into the wee hours of the morning, it is finished and in the hands of its new owner.  Each light strip has a different signature, 80 in all.  I picked the colors of the school and district.  Thanks again for all your suggestions. (P.S. Those are my husband's hands holding it off the floor. LOL )

It came out great! I'll bet she loved it!  

 I had an employee some years ago that was retiring after 25 years working for the hospital and I made a signature pillow (it was a very small department).  I saw her again about five years later, just around town, and she told me how much she loved it and how it reminded her of all of us every time she looked at it.    I'm sure the recipient of this quilt will feel the same way.

Hello Mimi,

You did a wonderful job! It looks terrific and exactly the type of pattern I was looking to find. Thank you for posting this question. I too am an elementary teacher who was searching for a signature pattern for a retirement quilt. Our principal just announced his retirement due to health reasons, so I have less than 3 weeks to get it completed. 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!
