Wedding Quilt

I know you all must be getting sick of wedding talk, but since I'm planning a wedding it looks like it's going to continue for a while.

I really want to do a wedding quilt for my guestbook. I got the idea from Speakaboo on craftster:


I want to have maple leaves though for the guests to sign and I'd like the tree to look more like this:

I also love the wedding rings at the bottom of this. I may also go with a tree of life theme:

But I don't know where I'd put leaves on that design. Hmmmm.

GORGEOUS! What a great idea! Just a thought and maybe you've already thought of this too... you might want to wait to put the leaves on till after the wedding. That way you could have extra leaves in case someone messes up and wants to start again (I could see myself doing this!)... Maybe you could applique the leaves onto a finished tree??? I don't know, I'm not a quilter :)

I like that idea, I'm thinking of having them at the tables with lots of paint pens.

Hi, congrats on your wedding! I'm getting married next May and thinking of doing a wedding quilt guest book too...i love the one with the double rings at the bottom...did you make that, or do you know who made that?

I love the quilt with the rings at the bottom, and how the tree trunk intertwines as it grows and sprouts. Do you know where I can get the pattern for it?
