    oh, i was trying to clean out my sewing room. but i found a whole lot of siggie blocks in a plastic tub. i thought i'd sewn together the last of them into a wall hanging. they must have been a different size. rats. i thought i was done. these i found are 5 1/2 inches. since they are signed i can't give them away. that would break my heart.
    also found sunbonnet Sues and scottie dog blocks signed. sigh!
    will it ever end. I hope not!!! i don't do swaps anymore but love the blocks i have, so i'll keep on plugging. :shock:

    Someday you will find the perfect use for them. Maybe a little here and a little there.

    If you have enough, why not put them all into one quilt for yourself?

    I was just thinking that the siggies could be made into larger blocks with strips added around. I have a lovely wall quilt of some on point and another coming. the top is done, just need to quilt it. but larger blocks for a larger quilt interests me more this time. i don't want to add triangles. i'm seeing strips. so far anyway.
    I wish i could make quilts for my granddtrs but my DIL doesn't like "blankies" so the scottie dogs and Sues are for my home.

    What are siggie blocks? Don't know your language yet. Some things I can figure out but don't know this one.

    can you share a photo of your block collection? how about a fun asymmetrical layout with all the signature blocks (siggys for those not familiar) and the other swap blocks.. add one unifying color to the group.
