What are you most proud of? That I have it done and found the perfect backing fabric for her quilt. She was one to give us lots of wisdom over the years and I found this Maxine fabric and I love the wisdom she gives.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I ironed freezer paper onto the border before adding it to the quilt to aid in letting people write on it. I have learned that even if you ask people not to write in the seam allowance they do, so I put the entire quilt top together before getting it signed so I did not have that problem. Use smaller stitches in the signature blocks to aid it taking out the freezer paper. I had 2 quilts that were the same and even though I had labels on them each quilt got messages for the other person. Since they are good friends I think it will make the quilts that much more special.

They both were very surprised and loved them. I love making quilts that are personal and a surprise. Next one is for a paying customer (yay), it will be a lap size quilt made with her younger child's clothing.
