Last Call

Posted on January 26, 2021 by prairiemoonquilts in Quilts

I’m fixin’ to start sewing my Signature blocks together that I collected last year!

I’m too curious to see how they’re gonna look to leave them laying around in the bag much longer. Plus, it’s giving me a way to “start something new” without actually starting something “new”. Teehee! See how I pulled that off, there?

I ended up with 129 blocks!

And if you want to send me a signature block and still haven’t, since it’s gonna take me awhile to sew them together, you can still send me one. I’d rather the quilt be larger than smaller, so don’t assume you’re too late — you can find the tutorial HERE. I’d love to have one from you if you haven’t sent one yet!

I’ve decided the setting will be quite random and a mixup of several ideas, since I’ll probably need to add lots of filler pieces to make it a respectable size (and that will use up even more scraps). I’ll keep you posted on my progress. Meanwhile, send me more blocks so I can make it even bigger!

    Hi Shelly – we were banned from sending cards abroad, so I guess the little patch wouldn’t have been accepted either. Weird times. On the plus side, the Christmas cards to go to Canada, New Zealand and South Africa are ready to send for this year! Come to think of it, I might just write the next lot for this year and be well ahead! LOL! But it won’t hurt to try one more time when I’m next in the village.

      Wow! May I ask where you live? I live I. Canada and as of today we can send INternational mail. Will make a signature square tomorrow! I don’t have white cotton but will reverse a wow cotton.

    It will be interesting to see how this develops. I am considering starting a group project in the form of a wedding quilt for Sparkle Jane. Any advice?

    Yes! I will get one in the mail to you this week I came across a pink one while cleaning up…!

    Old lady brain has not completely kicked in. I have not forgotten that I sent a signature block quite a while ago. But you never know what you will have to deal with in a couple more years!!! Poor Shelly!

    Can’t wait to see progress on it. I sent one when you first requested them. Fun project!

    Just saw this via instagram. I’m always late to the party! I’ll plan to send you one. I have a favorite quilt of blocks I collected and traded with others. Glad to help you “grow” yours.

    So glad to get this reminder! I’ll do it today so it doesn’t slip my mind again. Not sure what happened to the “Signature Block” reminder I had pinned somewhere in the sewing room 🙂
    If there are any particular colors you’d like another spot of, let me know.
