    My daughter did not want a guest book and asked for squares for signing. I did that but decided to use the signed squares on the back and made a top showcasing places she has lived while leading up to her wedding. Each row is a state with a special square that is persinal to her time in that state. The states were, MO,MS, LA, SC and the last row is the city where the newlyweds are living, Baton Rouge. I displayed the quilt at the rception with a story for each row. Now to put it all together.

    I am sure this is something she will treasure forever. I can just see her explaining to your grandchildren the story of the quilt. Great idea!
