This is the quilt that I started when we got married.
It's sorta based on the Sarah Johnson quilt I mentioned a couple of posts ago.
My mom and sister cut out all these little squares of white fabric, and at my shower, all the girls who came signed them.
I then used these to make the above sample blocks to show at the wedding. We made a poster board of them. Below it, was a basket of the blank squares, and we asked all the wedding guests to sign.
They graciously did, so now I have tons and tons of these little signature squares. I still need to make the rest of the blocks. The ones shown here are just the ones from the shower.
It's a very cool idea, and if you decide to try it...be sure to tell people to sign 1 block EACH. Not 1 block per family. That way you will get a lot more signatures.
In other news, I ordered some postcards for my blog...from Overnight Prints. Have any of you tried this service or can you recommend another place? I just tried them because they are sorta close to me, so we'll see. I'm running to my mailbox every day with great expectations.
