Signature block.

If you have been sewing along on any of the Quilt Along events, you will have seen that some of the designers releasing a signature block during the event.

What is a signature block?
It is a block, that you can sew and embroider with your details on it. You can use this as your quilt label and you can send this block to the designer, who collects all of these blocks from all over the world to make into a memory quilt for themselves.

Do I have to make one?
Absolutely not. This is a special request, and is not compulsory at all. We would love to get one though, it makes such a nice memory to add into a quilt.

What do I do?
Download the pattern. Sew it up. And embroider / stencil your name, where you are from and the #FBQAL2 somewhere on the block and send it off to the address that is printed on the pattern. Easy peazy.
