Ties That Bind

The finished quilt will have sashing between the sets with alternating nine patch blocks. Jo Morton's new book "Vintage Journey" has a picture of the quilt...she has titled her's "Kindred Spirits". I had the best time playing with all the blocks ... and what a great feeling it was to finally be working on this quilt! Now it's time to sew...
In November 2007, my DH and I renewed our wedding vows. For our "Guest Book", I sewed signature blocks together for everyone to sign. I planned on making a "Ties That Bind" quilt from the blocks. Lots of months have flown bye and finally I am getting around to making that quilt. Pictured here are the blocks in their "semi permanent" positions. All fabrics are from various collections from designer Jo Morton.

What a wonderful idea, having the guests sign a block. It's such a nice, personal way to remember the celebration. And it's so pretty!
