    My 15 year-old granddaughter will be going into high school next year. She is a rather personable young lady and has a lot of friends. Some of her Jr. High classmates will be attending a different high school, and some members of her swim team are graduating, so she will be losing some of the friends she has had for several years. I suggested a signature quilt for her and she was very enthusiastic about the idea. I made the blocks, put some in a plastic baggie along with a pigma pen and she put this in her backpack. Between now and the time school is out, she should have all the signatures she needs/wants, and I will sew the blocks together for her. I wish someone had done this for me!!!

    What a great idea! Having her help me will give her more entitlement to her quilt. Thanks...

    I did that for my DD track coach, Except I made the quilt making sure that I had enough "white" spaces for each team member to sign. Only problem was, some of the girls decided they wanted to use "puff" paint to sign their names. Oh Well, coach loved it, even though the puff paint really made it look ....... Not as nice.

    Great idea. Remember the autograph hound dogs from the 50's? ( I think it was the 50's.) The quilt will last much longer!!!

    What a great idea! All we had was yearbooks to sign! Good luck trying to keep track of them over the years and all the moves in life!

    Wonderful idea. A gift I am sure she will treasure. I am in the process of making a signature quilt for our associate pastor who will soon be leaving to become the head pastor at another church. The quilt I am making is a basket weave pattern set on point and all ot the setting triangles have the signatures and little notes from church members. I will post a picture when it is complete. I am racing against time to get it quilted. I will have to do that by machine or it won't be done in time.

    This is an awesome idea! So much better than just signing a yearbook like we used to do.

    This is a wonderful memory for her.
    But don't forget to add the date, plus the school
    and town. That will be important to her own kids
    should they not be raised in her home town.

    I am in the process of making an autograph quilt for my DD Speech & Drama Coach. We are going to try to get as many former team members to sign it also. So it probably will not be done until the end of summer. Just try to catch all of those busy teenagers and young adults! All of you are right - it will be a cherished gift.

    I made a "Bow Tie" quilt for a Doctor that has retired. He was the founder of the practice. He wore bow ties most of the time. I got 23 neck ties from his wife, took them apart(took me 4 months) stabilized them and with unbleached muslin I made bow tie blocks. Each bloch was alternated with a signature block. The signature blocks were from
    Doctors he had worked with over the past 40 years, patients that he had treated and past employees that have either moved or retired. One patient he treated while in Vietnam. I didn't put any batting in it, would have been too heavy. It ended up being 7 foot square. I did put a sleeve on the back before putting the back on it. Did I mention that I have been with this practice almost 31 years. She will enjoy the signature quilt. My Doc. does. Em
