How change text in Forum signature?

I expected this to be changeable in my Profile, but I can't find it anywhere. I'm trying to change the text in my auto-signature that appears at the bottom of my Forum posts. Thanks.

What is a laundry basket quilt?

I've seen photos of them. I've seen references to books about them. But what ARE they? How would you describe a "laundry basket quilt"? Thanks.
