I absolutely love guest book quilts. If you have not seen one, or heard of one, wedding guests simply write a short message on a square (with a permanent marker, of course). My mother got married in 2010. Yes, 2010. And I volunteered to make her quilt. PLEASE NOTE: It did NOT take me 4 years to actually make this quilt, haha! The fabric has actually been put away, along with my sewing machine for the past 4 years. As I have experienced some, not so exciting, events in my life, sewing was on the bottom of my to-do list.
At the beginning of the year I made some changes to make myself happier. Sewing is probably the one thing in life that sends me into that happy zone….so I broke out the machine, went on
tons a couple of fabric shopping sprees, and gathered patterns to get me going. This quilt has been on my mind for YEARS now. It’s LONG overdue. So, happy 4 year annivarsary Mom! 🙂
