What is a Signature Quilt? Signature quilts are quilts that have names inscribed on them either with pen or embroidery and are created with fundraising, fellowship and memory as their goal. The International Quilt Study Center and Museum located at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln has a new exhibit called What's In A Name? Inscribed Quilts which I talked about almost exclusively in regards to Signature or Inscribed Quilts. The link for the exhibit is here.
Have you ever participated in a Signature Quilt project? Do you have a Signature Quilt from the past? Please comment below or send me an email if you have any experience with Signature Quilts.
In the three days between uploading the podcast and publishing this blogpost, I have already received one comment from listener Jane who sent me a link to a fascinating Quilting Board forum thread about the Signature Quilt top featured below. The thread is called Paris Texas 1931 Friendship Quilt Top. Go check out the link here to read how quilters/genealogists are attempting to help BrendaY, to identify whom the signatures belong to on the quilt top.
