Signature Quilt

   Last week I finished quilting this quilt for a friend at work.

    I can honestly say I was challenged. I just love the story behind this signature quilt. Her friend of many years is moving back to Germany and so the neighborhood made a quilt to give to her at her farewell party.  Each block was made with love by the families in the neighborhood. Even the pets were included! Love that!

I tried to keep it kind of organic on the lattice pieces.

and tried to stick with 3 or 4 different patterns in the lattice.

Quilting on the photo blocks was a little bit challenging.

I must say I had a lot of fun with this.
I really like this type of custom quilting, rather
than the pantograph quilting.
It does take a lot more time though.

Just love the signature blocks.

A little shot of the detail.

Even threw in a few feathers!

What a great way to try new things with my rulers.

Hope she likes it!

  1. Wow, it looks great. I can see how it becomes time consuming, so much detail.
