    50th Anniversary quilt

    I made this Big Star quilt for our friends who celebrated their 50th Anniversary this weekend. As people arrived at their party, we ask that they autograph the quilt. I thought it would be a nice momento to remember their special day. The Big Star block was a tutatorial on Missouri Star Quilt Co.

    Your quilt is gorgeous. I prefer the idea of having the quilt put together before signed. The recipient can walk out the door with it.

    I love your choices of fabrics and the idea of having people sign is great. What a nice treasure for this couple!
