Signing quilts has been popular for many years, originating when quilting began. Friends signed blocks for a new bride and groom, for church fund-raisers and for special friends. They called them signature quilts. And experienced embroiderer usually embroidered the names on the blocks over the people's signatures.
With the invention of permanent fabric pens, quilters have continued this tradition. In this book, you will see signed blocks from a New York quilt event honoring the Statue of Liberty, quilting workshop teachers' signatures, signatures from an 80th birthday party, signatures of race care drivers, from members of a quilt guild honoring their founder, from students paying homage to a favored teacher, names of butterfly varieties, an antique embroidered quilt, and signatures from a summer quilt festival.
