I finished working on a signature quilt from a wedding my husband and I went to. I found the perfect backing fabric! This perfect fabric is filled with brightly colored crayons and doodle marks, yes it's perfect. Perfect for two teachers!!!
One is a Physical Education Teacher and the other is a Special Education Teacher. The wedding reception was school themed and complete with goodie bags, toys, crayons and coloring sheets. Several of the guests were teachers too and we had a blast.
When I saw this crayon fabric I couldn't pass it up. The bright colors spruced up the quilt. The signature blocks are made from a white on white bubble fabric. The sashings and outer border were created from a denim looking cotton fabric covered with a little bit of sparkle. I added a border of the crayon fabric to the front and used it for the binding as well.
I quilted the quilt with an overall design of wandering loops which matches the doodles of the crayon fabric.
Signature quilts are a favorite of mine. They're a fun way to commemorate a special occasion and create a conversation piece that is different from a photo album and will be around for a long, long time to come.
Try one, you'll like it.
