Our quilt guild makes blocks for each outgoing president at some point during that next year and we give them as a thank you gift to that member. This year we each made a scottie dog block. The dogs are all black (solid or dark print) with bright colors. We each had the same background white dot. At our quilt show this summer we had a display and a "bed turning" of president's quilts.
This is my block and you can see that we sign them as well. We presented these blocks last week at our December guild meeting. It will be fun to see what she does with them.
