    Memory/Signature Quilt Top

    Just about done with this quilt top I'm doing for a coworker's retirement later this month. I'll be adding a border of probably green. It should finish at about 40x45. I'll also add a hanging sleeve so she can hang it if she wants to.

    It is so pretty, and I love the simple lines of it with all the special things included.

    Be kind to yourself, by being kind to others. When you help others you help yourself.

    What a GREAT idea! I love this! Did you just have them sign on fabric with Pigma pens?

    I used a fabric dye pen from Hobby Lobby. I found Pigma pens a bit too fine for me. I used the same pens from Hobby Lobby on my daughter's wedding memory quilt, and they held up through washing.
