Wonky Wedding Quilt

My friend asked the guests at her son's wedding rehearsal to sign some fabric squares for me to put together in a quilt. I'd never heard of it but, I thought it was a great idea. This is the result.
Since none of the fabric pieces were square and some of the folks filled it from edge to edge, I came up with a wonky square design. I actually wound up having to cut a few of the letters out of some words occasionally, to have a seam allowance. In one place it was so close that while I was quilting, it tried to come apart, so I had to do some quick repair work.

There were more squares than I could use on the front, so I added the rest to the back in an even less structured pattern.
Since both of my children are already married, I won't be able to do this for them, but I hope I don't forget by the time my grandchildren marry. If I'm still around by then. *wink*


  1. Clever - love it. And great design from front to back or is it back to front? You always have to stick those 'signing' blocks in a cardstock frame to make people sign with-in the lines so to speak.

  2. It's simply gorgeous! My grandson is going to pop the question to his girlfriend before Christmas so maybe I'll get to use this idea. :) blessings, marlene
