A New Twist On An Old Tradition

Another project in the books. I can’t believe I finished my first quilt! It is not perfect by any means… but, that’s what makes it special.

This quilt was a new take on the ‘guest book’. Yes, I found it on Pinterest, and yes it actually turned out! We had our guests sign squares that were precut. We placed assorted colors out on the table with a sign explaining what to do. If you’d like more information, please shoot me a comment!

NEVER talk yourself out of something just because you’ve never tried it before… fear is the enemy and it can cost you amazing experiences and satisfaction that you never thought you’d achieve.

Below are photos I took throughout, all the way to the finished project, which is now gracefully adorning our living room wall.
