Signature Block

I was trying to figure out how I wanted to sign the Postage Stamp Quilt and I ended up doing it like this:

I took a leftover (reject) strip from the quilt top...I had several to pick from...

Then I cut the strip to the size I wanted....

I ironed in the edges about 1/4" on all sides...

I ended up stitching it to the back of the quilt.  Tried the heat and bond and it didn't work.  I actually like this style of signature block but will use a different pen I think.   In my test sample, my handwriting was beautiful and the ink was sharper.  I used a Sharpie marker.   Of course on my actual siggy block, my handwriting came out terrible, the ink looks smeary and it's quite all "squished".   I suppose that is called character.  lol
