    Ooh! I really want to try this myself! I love quilts – and have a few hand made ones from my mother and grand mother. I think it’s be really neat to have. Probably wouldn’t use it, but still 🙂 Very nice.

    I love the idea, but I’ve never quilted before, so I doubt I’d be able to turn the squares into a quilt. But it would be a great idea for those rustic vintage country weddings.

    I love this idea! I’ve only made one quilt before but would definitely love to make another

    I love this and would totally do it for my wedding IF I knew how to make it into a quilt afterwards, lol.  Alas, I do not and so we are going another route.

    I’m not sure I’d call making a quilt “super easy” but I have seen this done by a bride whose mother made the quilt for her afterwards, and it fit her personality very well.

    @SuperDuperBrit:  + 1 I cannot sew. Wish I could. Also, I think I would go with a lot of different color fabrics. Aren’t guilts suppose to be colorful??

    @bunnyharriet:  I had heard of this before, but thanks for posting the idea of hanging them up like that !!! love it and it will be a cool idea for our country vintage outdoor wedding!

    I would suggest taking your fabric square ahead of time and iron down a half inch all around, and either baste it or tape it on the back … Then people would not be able to write over the seam allowance.  I would think if you iron back a full 1/2 or a full inch, then when you actually sew it together you’ll have a little space between the writing and the seam.  Great !

    Love it!  My Maid/Matron of Honor did this.  Her husband’s mom is sewing it into a quilt for them.
