    My Mother-In-Law made us a cross-stitch as a wedding gift and I LOVE it. It is so beautiful. And it means so much that she took the time to make it. I would also love the quilt is someone gave us that as a gift. Everyone is different though, I prefer meaningful gifts myself. I say if they are the type of people who you think would appreciate it, go for it!

    I think quilts as gifts are AMAZING, but I’m probably biased.  There are 6 kids in my family, I’m the 4th to get married – each child has gotten a quilt.  The first two were quilts handmade by my great grandmother.  She passed away, however, and her quilting group made the third.  I guess you could say it’s a tradition in our family and I can’t wait to get our ‘wedding quilt’!

    I think that would be nice if you knew their style.  I am not a fan of the quilted/cross stitched look for anything, so if someone gave us something like that it would never get used. But if you think that fits in with them go for it!

    Future Mother-In-Law has dropped hints that FI’s cousin will be giving us one- what a great gift! I think it’s a good idea to run it by the couple, just in case (make sure they’d like one), and definitely check on what colors they want. It sounds like ours will be in our wedding colors, which doesn’t go with our bedroom at all, so it’ll unfortunately end up in the guest room.

    Personally I wouldn’t like this BUT I am insanely picky and I coordinate everything in my house so that’s why I wouldn’t be too crazy about it.

    That’s a sweet idea and it’s a lot of effort. However I picked out my bed set in my registry and I’d rather have that.

    I would love love love it!!! I want a wedding ring quilt so bad for after we’re married it’s a little insane. 

    My mom is making us a cross stitch sign that we will be hanging up or putting somewhere at the ceremony/reception. I love it. I think it’s so personal and sweet ๐Ÿ™‚

    Personally, I like more modern bedding.  I might use it for a blanket for on the couch but I doubt I would use it enough to make it worth all of your time and money.

    On the other hand, if it is their style than it would be an AMAZING gift.  I really do like personal gifts.

    We had one of these made from an etsy seller but it would have been even nicer if someone had made one for us.  I’m not in the least bit crafty but it could be a fun project if you are!  It has the lyrics to the couples first dance song.

    @love108:  +1!

    Sounds like an awesome gift, but I suppose it depends on their style. You’ll know best if it is something they would want or not.

    I think it’s really special of you to want to do a gift like this, but it would be lost on me and probably put away in my storage locker or buried in the closet. I already have quilts (including handmade ones), and they match my color scheme and taste.
