Wedding Quilt

Our niece is getting married in March and she asked me about making a signature quilt for guests to sign instead of a guest book.  There will be 80 blocks for people to sign then I'll assemble and quilt it as their gift.  Here is the general idea:

I'll iron freezer paper to the back of the white squares for stability in signing.  First, I'll draw straight lines on the back of paper as guidelines--they will be visible through the white fabric.  I'll trim all the blocks to size after the signatures are done. 

Take a look at Patchwork Times blog to see what others have on their design walls.

Let's quilt!



  1. This is a fantastic idea and one that can be displayed and remembered instead of hidden away in a cabinet. Great job!!

  2. What a great idea. You are a nice aunt to do all of this prep work for her!!!

  3. I made signature blocks for my daughter's wedding and also my son's. Alas, neither sets are finished into quilts. But the wedding quilts are! Nice block idea for a signature quilt.

  4. Beautiful colors! Lovely idea for a twist on the guest book :)
