She decided to use the back of the quilt as a guest book, then use the quilt on their couch as a wedding memento. I thought that was a great idea! Who ever looks at the wedding guest book again? The quilt, however, is a fun combination of “his and hers” and will serve a useful purpose after the wedding.
I ordered this cross-hatched backing, thinking it would be relatively good for people to sign.
I used very thin polyester batting (Quilter’s Dream Request Loft poly) so the quilt will be fairly flat for signing. We’ll use fine point sharpies I am leaving the backing unwashed in the hope that the finish on it will limit bleeding.
The wedding is only a couple of weeks away, so I’m off to deliver the guest book!
