    I love butterflies! My home is full of butterfly things. In all of my quilted projects, I always add my special butterfly signature, whether it is in the fabric I choose, the pattern I use, the label, or the actual quilting itself. Sometimes its not even noticable but I know its there. Does anyone else out there have a special signature like this?

    I use all kinds. It can be a butterfly stencil I use in my quilting, or butterfly fabric I put in my quilt. For my sons 21st BD I made him a patriotic type quilt as he was in the military. I named it 'Freedoms Peace'. I quilted doves all over it ( the only doves I put in the quilt). I substituted 1 dove for a butterfly. Its been 4 years now and he still hasn't found the butterfly.

    I do an anchor. My father was a commercial lobster fisherman. I'd do a lobster if I could draw it. :) There's usually an anchor on my label.

    I keep forgetting to make up a special signature. Dang it! Guess I need to produce more quilts. LOL

    I like all the ideas for icons.

    I have used the premade labels of a red heart that says "ps I love you". The first quilt it went unnoticed till her sister said something. It is also on the pillow cases for DGC. My labels with my name should be here any day now - so excited. I love the idea of a signature within the qulting.

    Never thought of putting an unique signature like that. It's a neat idea.

    Yes, my signature is something pink. I have loved the color pink all my life and will never stop liking it. In our October wedding we had Rose Pink as color instead of fall colors, When I give something away, there is always something pink in it. I am now making a quilt for gal in org. I belong to and even tho the colors are blue yellow and white, there will be pink in it somewhere. My brother accused me of having pink blood, but that isn't the case.
