I have been trying to come up with some sort of signature for my quilts ever since I finished my first quilt. I looked into everything from sewing on a tag to simply signing the back. Instead, I decided to embroider my signature. This way it would be more finished looking than a fabric pen and I could do it in any color to match the quilt. So here is what I originally came up with:
It's simple enough that I could easily adjust the size to fit the quilt. I simply wrote a k on the fabric and then did a back stitch over it. This seemed ideal too so that it is still in my handwriting. I then moved on to the baby blanket and decided to add a heart like this:
Since it is a gift I wanted it to be more like "Love, Kara" than just a signature. After consulting some fellow crafters, we decided that all quilts are made with love so I decided to incorporate the heart into all quilts, not just the ones given as gifts. We also decided that they should really be dated too. I picked a different color for the date so it would stand off as it's own piece and let the signature be separate. I also used thinner thread for the date so it would be easier to read since it is so small.
So here it is; the official quilt signature!
