Signature swap

At Rocheberie Schoolhouse Quilters on Saturday, I signed up for a Signature Swap. You have to make a small log cabin block in reds, and then put your name on it, to be swapped with other quilters. Twenty one people wanted to do this so I had to make 21 blocks.

I could have written on the blocks using a permanent pen but I decided to use the letters programme which came with my machine. I've only had my machine for eleven years but have never tried out the memory function! Strangely enough, when I looked it up in the manual, it was easy, which made adding the lettering quite straightforward. I could get used to sitting at my machine while it sews itself - I wonder if it can be pre-programmed to make half square triangles?!
