As I am the resident quilter in the family, my sister in law called me a few months ago to discuss an idea she had for her wedding. She wanted to know about the possibility of creating a guest book out of quilt squares. I had never heard of the idea, but immediately loved it- where was this idea when I got married?! I told her that I would research it and send her the ideas I found.
After spending some time on Pinterest, I compiled several different ideas and options on a Pinterest board and sent it to her for review. We decided on a simple patchwork style. She told me her favorite colors and patterns, and I went to the fabric store to find the right fabric. I found a mix of prints and solids. At the wedding, people will sign the lighter colored squares with fabric markers, and later I will mix and match those signed squares with the coordinating prints. She has also asked for a big monogrammed square in the middle of the quilt. The final quilt will have 9 inch squares and be queen sized so they can put it on their bed if they wish. I am so excited to see how the final product will turn out! What a great way to preserve your wedding memories!
