A way to collaborate, and then commemorate

Collaborate & Commemorate | A mini quilt and signature block pattern

I had a blast being part of the Week of Collaboration over on the Modern Quilt Guild blog. Not only did I get to kick the week off with my beloved Sew Connected quilt, but I was tickled to see that I personally participated in and contributed to several of the virtual quilting bee quilts and tutorials featured throughout the week. Then, I closed out the week with a new original project idea, which I call my Collaborate & Commemorate Mini Quilt / Signature Block pattern.

From my post:
To wrap up our week of collaboration, I’m sharing my idea to make a commemorative mini quilt where your fellow group members can each write their name and hometown, as well as dates and any other memories, funny stories, or notable quotables from the journey you took together. Or, you can piece this as a large block into the backing of your quilt for a lasting record of who you worked with to create the quilt together.

To read more, or to get the pattern, check out my post here.
