Now here's a novel idea.....

Instead of sewing up a quilt....why not paint one!  Now wouldn't that be a fun challenge for a quilt guild?  Want some inspiration, I found this slideshow at

Here's all you need: 
  •  1/4"  plywood cut to the size you'd like your finished sign to be
  •  white primer
  • assorted acrylic paints
  •  paint brushes
  • pencil and ruler
  • blue painter's tape
  • exacto knife
  • waterproof sealer to protect your work of art if it's to be hung outside
  • your choice of hanging device:  d-rings  would work well
I must be having a senior moment....'cause I'm seeing visions of hundreds of quilt boards on our houses and banks and drug stores all over town advertising a quilt show!

Or a more simple painted board
