    I'm putting together a project for a fellow board member - if you would like to contribute a signature block, just pm me for details.

    There is a pattern for a signature block at Quilters Cache:
    http://quilterscache.com/S/SignatureBlock.html

    Eleanor Burns has one in her 25 Years and Still Stripping book also. Feel free to add links to other signature blocks to this thread as well.

    Signatures in the block should include your screen name, real first name, and where you live - city and state, providence and country.

    Thanks!
    Roben

    Chele, that is an awesome block! Thanks for posting it :D

    The signature blocks can be 6" or 8" and scrappy. We'll make them work :-)

    Another question that came up is what pen to use for the signature part. Personally, I use a Pigma Pen I got from my LQS, but I've heard of using a fine point Sharpie marker - does anyone have any experience with using a Sharpie? I want to make sure I'm giving out good info :wink:

    For our international board members, you are more than welcome to participate, so feel free to PM me :D

    The Sharpies that I have say "not for fabric" so I have never tried them. I use the pigma or fabric pen that I bought at LQS.

    the sharpies bleed into the fabric, making the edge of the letters fuzzy.

    The edges do look a bit fuzzy, but I like using sharpies. I iron set it so it's permanent and doesn't bleed elsewhere.

    End of March???

    I used my machine's lettering to do mine. My writing is bad on paper, you don't want to see it on fabric! lol My block will be in the mail Monday Roben. :)

    How about these blocks, I like these, can I do that?

    I think I will probably use the lettering on my machine, not because my writing is bad, but because I'm looking for an excuse to play around with my new machine :)

    Sure you can do that! Variety is the spice of life :D I didn't see a size on that block (just that you could size them); 6" or 8" would work best.

    Machine lettering will be fine as well :D :D
