I told you all that one of my many nieces was getting married yesterday and that she asked me to make a signature quilt for her. I have about 50 signed squares and have a few more to get from people who forgot to sign – mainly LOL – her mom and dad (my brother) who were too busy and distracted to take time to sign and her brother who was no where around when I was looking for him a few other relatives and I’m sending the bride some squares and a pen to gather more signatures from her friends if anyone forgot to sign – I will get with her on that next week. My little sister called me and told me that after we left she found more squares sitting on the tables that hadn’t got put back in the box so she gathered those up after I left. I’m not sure how many squares I will end up with, I might have to put some on the back of the quilt too!
I will start putting the quilt together later this year or early next after I get all the blocks back. Here are photos of getting blocks signed – two of my nieces – the brides cousins busy at work – Toni and Natasha.

Some of the blocks:
The bride Heather in the center, her mom and dad – Mike and Jeanie. Her brother on the end with the beard – Michael, on the opposite end, her sister Jennifer and hubby Josh, there boys in the front Peyton and Brody. (I just noticed I didn’t get a photo of the groom with the family – the photographer was getting some photos before the wedding started and I managed to snap off a few then).
Heather and Jack – these of course are just my snapshots – not the good photographer photos that they will have – good thing with the way I take photos the bridal couple have dated since high school, she just turned 22 and he is about 25 I think.

Whenever I get around to getting the quilt made I will be sure to show the end results!
