    My boss is retiring TUESDAY and the folks who were supposed to plan his going away party did nothing but order a cake.

    Here's where I need the help--a fast, easy wallhanging sized pattern which will let me embroider some sentiment for the center of the block.

    Ideas on blocks and sentiments would be so helpful for me.
    I browsed quilterscache and so far, carpenters wheel in 24 is appealing, but I'm not sure the center block would be big enough??

    HELP!! I have tonight, Friday, Sat, Sunday and Monday PM to get this done. It's going to be a stretch but I'm willing to stay up late for a spell.

    Do you have a lot of people, Julie? One that I've thought of for a business anniversary wall hanging is the Autograph Patch pattern in Quilter's Cache. Everyone can then write a sentiment and their name. Now you have my curiosity up, so I will keep looking for different ideas.

    There are fewer than 20 employees but we have 20+ folks who attend our program w/ developmental disabilites. Most of them cannot write/speak. I"d like it to be from all of us.

    Thanks for looking!

    You could do a rail quilt (outside rails scrappy, inside rail white or offwhite) with a large center block (measurements taken from size of rail blocks) with the information you want in it. Then your co-workers can each sign a block on the inside rail.
