Quilt history reports that Signature or Memory quilts were very popular with Victorian quilters in the mid-1800s. In the USA,  since the days of families moving West as pioneers, signature quilts have been given as gifts by families and groups of friends for a special occasion: a leave-taking, a birthday, an anniversary, a new baby, a retirement, or other special occasion.  There are blocks that are especially useful for signing with blank areas in the block. Permanent pens are used or sometimes embroidery for the signatures. Ironing freezer paper on the back of the fabric makes it easier to sign the fabric and keep it from shifting.
