Early on in my wedding planning Pinterest frenzy, I came across the idea of a guest book quilt. Jordan's mother is an talented quilter, and I sent her the idea. She loved the concept and quickly volunteered to do it. We talked a little bit about what it would look like---family tree inspired where the guests would sign leaves on a tree (if we didn't have connections to a quilter, we probably would have done this). She ran with it from there, and when she sent me a photo of the "base" quilt sans-leaves, I choked up. It's more beautiful than anything I could have imagined, and I can't wait to display it in our home.
