Wedding trends come and go, but over the last few years I've seen wedding guest sign-in "books" become more and more creative.
I've signed guitars, globes, left my thumbprint on a canvas, etc.
I'm always a big fan of things that can get used over the years instead of sitting on a shelf collecting dust. That's why a wedding guest sign in quilt in a brilliant idea!
Valerie Greene wanted a way to incorporate her quilting mother-in-law into her wedding planning process. A wedding quilt was the perfect solution and has provided a great memento of the wedding and her new family.
Valerie shared her story and pictures with us.
"In 2013 Will and I got engaged. His family lives in PA and I wanted to somehow include them, especially his mom in our wedding planning but I wasn't sure how.
The distance made it hard. I knew his mom loves to sew, so I decided instead of a guestbook I wanted to have a guest quilt!
I handed that completely over to my future mother in law.
She ran with it and made this wonderful quilt for us! It reminds us of all the love that has surrounded, family and friends who have supported us each in our journey to this point.
She even went out of her way to have family sign a square who couldn't be there that day due to various reasons. Which means even more now because we lost 2 of Will's grandparents less than a year after we were married.
To me the quilt symbolizes warmth, hope and love as we started our journey and as we continue creating an eternal family.
I hope that this quilt will be treasured for generations to come."
