    DD is getting married on the 30th (#2). I have been doing a lot of sewing for her - alterations, flower girls dress, table runners and the start of rail fence signature blocks. She does not want a guest book, so the guests will sign blocks.

    The blocks are in one basket, and after they get signed they will go into the other basket. THEN after the wedding I will get to put the quilt together for her and new husband. Then all wedding sewing will be behind me.

    I have been sewing for this wedding for the last two months, so my quilt projects have gotten a little behind.

    What a great idea! That is going to be quite a memory quilt! Please show us when you get it together.
    Have fun at the wedding!

    Yes, freezer paper is on. Even made extra blocks, so non sewers can have more than one chance to sign the blocks :roll: :oops: :lol:

    Did you make the baskets too? I just took a class on how to make them and it was great. They're not hard to make, just a little tedious and time consuming.

    I think what you're doing is an excellent idea and much better than sending a block to everyone expecting to get every one of them back. This way they aren't leaving the place, so you will definitely get them all back. Great thinking! :thumbup:

    Have fun. Been there...doing that! My nephew is getting married the 30th & I've been helping. Just finished the hemming alterations last night & leave in a few minutes to deliver the dress to the bride. This weekend I'm making all of the pew bows.
