    You could provide squares of white for everyone attending to write their best wishes on and then make it for a future anniversary.

    Congratulations, and try to enjoy it!

    Good for you! Quilting is supposed to be fun and there would be nothing fun or relaxing about trying to make a quilt AND help with a wedding.

    I wanted a wedding quilt, so I made it my own bloody self, after finishing the requisite other 12 quilt tops. I was putting the binding on it the morning I got married, and the only other decorations we had were bunting made from the scraps used in the quilt (also made by me :) and a 100 tulip bundle bought from Sam's. My husband and I did everything for our wedding ourselves - all anyone else really had to do was show up.

    Take a deep breath, it will all be fine. Enjoy the wedding.
    The quilt will come later.

    Congrats and enjoy the wedding. People also think you can make a quilt and don't realize the actual costs. They aren't cheap to make.

    I think the big thing, is the time a quilt takes. Perhaps Christmas gift next year, I can make one. Just not now.

    What, you don't just happen to have a King size quilt just lying around? A one year Anniversay quilt sounds do-able. It's really nice that they are going to get married and you don't want to miss a minute of the special occasion.

    People who don't quilt have no idea what it takes to make a quilt. Take a deep breath and enjoy the wedding first, then when things settle down you can start to think about a quilt. It will give you more tome to think about what you want to make. Ilike the idea of poeple signing fabric you could piece them together for the back of quilt. I did this for a quilt I made for our last family reunion. Everyone had so much fun.
