Well, it only took a year and a half but the quilt is done. From an idea that my brother, my then fiancé and I came up with. To choosing and buying fabric, cutting fabric and getting the quilt squares signed at each reception. Then figuring out the order, size and pattern for the quilt. Next was a long pause before finally buying the sashing, cutting the sashing and starting to piece together the sashing.
Quilting can be a long process but it’s so worth it:-)
It’s beautifully quilted with special words tucked into the sashing and it’s a very light quilt so we’ll be able to use it even in the Australian heat. But since it’s colder here, we’ve been using it with other blankets underneath. Nevertheless it is fun to keep rediscovering the decorated squares from our wonderful family and friends. Thank you everyone who contributed to this sweet memory. Finally, our wedding reception guestbook quilt is complete!
