A Beautiful Signature Quilt!

I have ordered this book - I just love the Signature Quilt - the nicest I have ever seen, I think! There is a Signature Swap being organized in the USA - this book has been shown and I have to make this quilt! How I will go about names? - I don't know! It will be fun working it out, but I know a lot of my Blogland friends will figure on it!

My Christmas in July gifts arrived a little while back - I opened the box yesterday, but still haven't opened the pressies - must check with Stephanie when we should! Maybe 25 July?

Have had big problems with my emails this morning so have stacks to forward - 2 hours on the phone to Bigpond, grrrrhhh! Hope things are right now - not happy! But, at least I have organized my cutting table top for the bench in 'My Studio' - so if son-in-law has time this afternoon may have that completely assembled!
We have a new Blogger, Marls from Cats and Capers - she sounds lovely and comes from beautiful Brisbane - if the fancy takes you, please pop over and give her a Blogland welcome!
My blog is going to have a revamp - it's sort of happening slowly - must get some pics away to one of Blogland's Angels! I had better not disclose her identity until I check if she wants it to be revealed. I'm getting used to the fresher look already - not so vintage, but then I am having such fun playing with the modern fabrics, too, these days!
Happy Weekend!

That is a nice signature block quilt. And a Jo Morton pattern so it uses her fabrics, I'm sure.

It is a wonderful book, as are all of Jo Morton's works. Look closely at the top siggie block on the cover, and you'll see my name! LOL I would gladly make a block for you.
