    What makes your quilts so special?

    Maybe its a certain stitch you use at the end, or maybe you sign your name in fabric marker to the bottom. Show off what you do!

    Here's what I do:
    When I hand-quilt something, I use pastels, and make a "greater or equal to" sign.

    i have a little 'thumbprint' that i put into each of the things that i make. sometimes its larger, most times its very small and inconspicuous and only if you knew it was there somewhere would you take a closer look and then they look forever to find it

    Every quilt i make has some piece of "bug" fabric in it! Yes, insects! I have such a large stash of bug fabric, I rarely have trouble finding something to use, and if all else fails, I quilt a bug into it!

    This is a great post. I'm with sue1964 and BuzzinBumble.....every quilt I make contains a little "fudge". I'm always messing up something.

    I got the fudge thing going too
    I've been assing a heart with 3 lines coming out
    The heart is a kitty nose and the three lines oneach side are the wiskers.
    also, i take pride in my labels.either embroidery, appliqued with a cute
    Design or a combo of both

    And I thought that was my signature alone... LOL! I know you're supposed to intentionally make a "God's Eye" in each quilt. I don't have to go out of my way to make one... they seem to come second nature to me! LOL!
