My mother-in-law received this signature quilt from her Mother when she got married in 1941. The quilt contains embroidered signatures of her relatives, some of whom I have met. Capitola and Clell Gray's signatures are there - they attended our wedding 30 years ago. Wish I had gotten to know them better. Adren Denny's signature is there - we purchased his house years ago, and our oldest daughter now lives there. My husband's grandparents, William and Edna Green, have their signatures included and it was so fun to see my husband's surprised expression when he realized this. The quilt is so precious to us and will be passed along to our daughters someday.
I recently participated in a signature block swap with 20 other online friends, and am looking forward to including their signed blocks in a quilt. Lots of ideas for making the quilt are coming to mind, including adding the signature blocks to house blocks, star blocks or maybe a crazy quilt. These blocks contain memories of happy times getting to know people who I may never meet from all over the world, and from several U.S. states. Have you made a signature quilt and how did you decide to include the signatures?
