    Hi everyone. My daughter is getting married in September. For her wedding we have made fabric squares to place in center of each table. After the wedding I would like to use this fabric to make a quilt. I will have 24 squares measuring 21/1/2", two different colors, hot pink and bright yellow. I am looking for a creative way to use the fabric as a memory for her and her husband. Any ideas? Thanks a bunch

    I would cut it into strips and use them around wedding pictures. Get disposable cameras for the tables and ask guests to feel free to take candid shots of the reception. Also get some of the wedding pictures, copy them onto fabric, put yellow around wonky cut then pink and wonky cut it. Alternate the pinks and yellows.

    Have the guests sign them with a saying to the bride and groom and date the blocks.

    love the idea about cameras, but put tag on them to leave at table for Bride and groom....a friend went to a wedding where one of the guests at her table went around and put all the cameras into her purse then walked out...Bride never got any cameras or photos back...

    I love the idea of pics included in the quilt. What a fun and great gift this is going to be.
