That’s ADORABLE!  If I had any sort of quilting talent (or knew anybody who did), I’d be all over that!!

That’s what I plan on doing Smile  I’m going to have my grandmother use the squares taht people sign along with fabrics in our wedding colors & the scraps from my dress fittings to make a quilt.  I love that it’s something that can be passed down to our children…plus I’m always cold so I am constantly under a blanket!

Just make sure you use a pen that won’t fade.  I’d suggest going to a fabric store (think Joanne’s or maybe hobby lobby if you don’t have one near you) and asking them what to use.  

Cute idea, though!!!!  

Oh, and make sure you’re careful of the squares you use.  Some patterns are crap for writing on.  I’d suggest using a solid color and making a “border” for them to write inside, since you need at least a 1/8″ hem line.

On second thought…. talk to the person you want to make the quilt first, that way you two can hash out the best way to do this!!!

It’s a great idea!  I’ve seen this done once a few years ago by a bride I worked with as her coordinator.  They used fabric pens to have people sign, and later they stitched over the ink with thread and sewed all the squares together.

Supercute!

For every college graduation in our expteded family my aunt does this. We have a huge graduation party and everyone make a square and she makes it into a quilt. i think it’s a great idea!

I love this idea and tossed it around for a while. But I don’t know anyone who knows how to quilt and I don’t want to pay a fortune (I really don’t know how much it costs to be honest) to have it done after the fact.

I think this is a FABULOUS idea 🙂

I would almost like to have one made for the simple fact, and to get all my family to sign it.

We are doing this for our wedding this summer.  One of our guests makes quilts and blankets all the time.  So for our wedding gift, she bought all the materials plus signing pens, and will put the quilt together for a wedding present for us.  I am so excited and can’t wait to see how it turns out.
