This little heart quilt block is great for all kinds of projects with signatures or quotations, not just Valentine’s Day. Sew a single block as a very personal present for a dear friend, or a remembrance quilt documenting a special event, such as a family reunion or wedding shower.
Use a water-erase marker to divide a piece of plain cotton into correctly-sized strips for your signatories to sign. This way, if they mess up, it’s not on a finished block and they can easily try again. Alternatively, if you’re good with computers and graphics manipulation, people can sign onto a plain sheet of white paper. Scan the signatures, resizing as needed, and then print them out onto printable fabric sheets.
A single Friendship Heart block would work well as a quilt label for the back of your next project.
