Library Journal - Library Journal
Typically made to commemorate occasions such as births, marriages, graduations, or retirements, signature quilts create memories. Often, groups of quilters will get together to make a signature quilt, which will feature one or more quilt blocks signed by the quiltmaker. In this A-to-Z guide, Saulmon covers the major techniques used for inscribing blocks, including pens, hand and machine embroidery, stencils, stamps, and computer-generated lettering. These techniques are illustrated with patterns for 24 quilt blocks suitable for signature quilts. An excellent choice for public libraries. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
