flickr photo from a Japanese quilt book. It wasn't hard to figure out how to make one by looking at it, just half square triangles bordered like a log cabin block. The idea is to use the white space for signatures.
There are 64 blocks in the quilt, and about 22 of those will be filled up at Thanksgiving. Then, whenever a new baby is born (you're next Megan!) or someone gets married (how about it girls??), we can add more signatures. I was thinking we could send the quilt home with someone different each year and bring it back the following Thanksgiving to be turned over to the next family member. I will probably make a sleeve for the back so it can be displayed like a wall hanging.
