Default Wedding Guest Quilt: Part 2 (fabrics and plan)

Hello all!

I posted a little while back about the wedding guest signature quilt that I am going to be making. I have made my decision on a pattern and bought the fabric!

Here is a mock up of the pattern I'm doing. It is warm wishes on point.

Here is a numbered row chart for piecing it together.

Here is a photo of the fabrics! I went shopping today as a reward for finishing a paper for grad school.

As several people suggested, I will not be piecing the quilt together until after the signatures have been done. I'll just be pre-washing and cutting the muslin for the signature squares, ironing them to freezer paper and somehow framing them to allow for easier signing.

Wish me luck!

Beautiful fabrics and the pattern is excellent for your purpose. Be sure to share a photo when it's done! Great planning!

Nope, just my wedding colors. I love them though!

I went to Elizabethtown College, blue and grey. Go Blue Jays!

Be sure and allow for the seam allowances when laying out the squares to be written on. Ask me how I know!!! LOL!!

We did this too. They are the colors for U/DE also. Love them. I thought if you could have a small hoop, put the fabric in and have the hoop on top, or a sticky board, it would be held taut. Also painter's tape might work, onto poster board. Have fun.

LOL I know EXACTLY how. Not to worry! I am cutting 6" blocks and laying a 5" paper window over it. This will also be set up to get the guest to sign the block in an "on point" orientation.

I bought 3yds of 118" wide muslin, thinking it would be easier to pre-wash, press, fold and cut than 10-12yds 44" muslin. Boy was I wrong. My 6" strips are a little wonky in places, no more than 1/8" off. Should this matter?
