Will you leave the writing as is with a pen or embroider or something over the writing? I have seen both and if some of the fabric is being sent to people to sign you may want to go over these if they use heir own pens. Just a query for you to think about.
thank you...i'm on it !!!!

Couple of tips - definitely iron your blocks to freezer paper; next time I'll cut the freezer paper finished block size and press the seam allowance under = no lost signatures; have some scraps for the signers to test writing on; test your pen on scraps for permanency - even though I had pre-washed fabric and used Pigma pens, I still had to heat set.
Be sure to post a pic of the finished quilt! :-)
