    Krisinlilly- We found a local quilter who will be making it for us. Because she makes lots of quilts she has a lot of fabric, but is willing to buy specific fabric if we need. I am super excited to get started in the planning of it. I am not too much of a DIY, but I do like to add touches of our personalities and making things unique.

    I have also heard of people having their guests sign puzzles pieces then putting it together and framing it for their wall...

      I really like this idea. We got engaged at a vineyard; this would be so nice.

        soonCB - how many people are you having at your wedding? We're only having ~15 is that enough to do the quilt?

          The great thing about making a quilt is that it can be done with any number of guest. We plan on having about 20 guests. I plan on picking the pattern with the quilter, but you can always arrange the signature squares with other fabric squares, I like the idea of adding photoes as well much that will cost us yet.
           

          Here is an example with pictures. I think this one may have been assembled before the wedding. we will just be bringing fabric squares and fabric pens with us. Nice and light :).

              really great ideas! we are having less than 20 and I was stuck for ideas on this to. Will have to show this thread to my FI and see what he says

               

              One idea I had was getting a nice hand painted plate from Mexico and getting everyone to sign it. I guess they would have to do it with paint though. Not sure.

                You might be able to do it with a paint marker... As long as you planned on just displaying it.

                  I love the signed wine bottle and the palm tree for the fingerprints.  Haven't seen the palm before and love it!

                    With the quilt, if written with pen and later on you want to wash it, won't it fade out??

                      Instead of a traditional guestbook, we are having our videographer go around during the cocktail hour to capture everyone's well wishes, so we will have them within our wedding video.
