Wedding Shower quilt


The future in-laws of my younger daughter Laura had a lovely bridal shower for her on Saturday in Redfield, her fiance's hometown. I believe she is going to enjoy being part of Jamie's family. She was able to meet lots of new people who knew Jamie as he grew up - such as a catechism teacher or a neighbor. Naturally they also shared some great stories about him with us.
Instead of bringing the traditional guest book, I made that little signature quilt for her. The guests all signed it and there is still room for more signatures if she has another shower. Or she may decide to bring it to her wedding reception too. You can see the quilt on the table in this photo.
Another great idea from this shower - every guest addressed the envelope for a thank you note. That way she had everyone's correct name and address.

  1. Wow, what great ideas! The signature quilt is wonderful. What a great wall hanging for their new home eventually. And the guests filling out the envelopes... that will make it so much easier for her besides being correct, to boot.

    Thanks, Sara, for sharing these idea

  3. Awesome idea! I have a wedding quilt made with signature blocks that one of my online friends made me. It hangs on our wall and reminds me of all that attended our showers.

  4. I love the idea of signature quilts but I think I'm too controlling to make one where the quilt is already pieced ...what if someone messed up the whole thing??
