When I posted my Signature Block tutorial, I posted it at the end of the Arrow Rock Sampler BOM post, and lots of people are having trouble finding it, so I’m excerpting it here so it’s easier to find and refer to.
So, in case you missed it, I’m making a signature quilt — and I’d love it if you would send me a signature block!
I’ve collected 25 blocks already so far! Many thanks to all of you who have already sent one. But I’m planning to make a huge quilt, so I need a LOT more — haha!
Here’s the tutorial:
You need a 3 1/2″ square of solid white, and two 2 1/2″ squares of a bright color (print or solid, I don’t care which).
Draw a diagonal line on the back side of each colored square, and line one up on the corner of the white square, right sides together. Sew ON the drawn line, then trim 1/4″ outside the seam. (Actually, if you sew just a hair to the outside of the drawn line, it works even better — see my example.)
Press the corner out. Repeat this with the other colored square on the opposite corner of the white square. You’ll end up with a cute little block like this (3 1/2″ square):
Then, if you want to send it to me, I want you to sign it. You can put where you’re from, too, cos I think that’ll be fun to see. Here’s mine:
Then stick it in the mail to me at:

Some of you have inquired as to the best pen to use for signing. Here’s the one I like to use:
It doesn’t bleed, and it makes a nice line weight. If you purchased Option 4 of the Arrow Rock Sampler BOM, you automatically get one in your first month’s packet. If you aren’t doing the Arrow Rock Sampler BOM, I have a few of the pens for sale in my Etsy shop. (Also, there are only a limited number of Option 4 of the BOM left, so if you’re thinking about getting in on the BOM with that option, don’t delay! — Options 1-3 aren’t limited, so you can always jump in on those anytime. You can read about the options HERE.)
