I would get some fairly stiff muslin and some marking pens, and have people sign the blocks. What are you going to do if there are more people who want to sign than there are blocks in your quilt? That is why I would start with the signed blocks and then build the quilt from there.

You can iron the squares to freezer paper and that makes them a lot easier to sign.

if the quilt is going to be finished, just fuse some medium weight interfacing to the squares that they will be signing BEFORE you sew it all up, and use a GOOD micron .05 tip pen. Should be fine!
