Handmade Double wedding ring quilt..... What would you think about getting one as a wedding present?

Posted by   + Show Post

My best, closest, dearest friend of 13 years is getting married later this year.  She has requested I not buy her anything for her wedding.  I am her matron of Honor and I have already been warned she will be tapping me for a lot of help doing stuff.  

She said I could make her something.  But she would kick my ass if I bought her anything.   I can't just give my best friend (basically my sister) NOTHING for her wedding.  

So I want to make her a Quilt.  A Double Wedding Ring quilt to be exact.  My question is to to you guys.  What would you think if you were given a Handmade Double Wedding Ring quilt?   Is it to old Fashioned?  To hokey?

I would LOVE it. Just the effort alone to make it (let alone the materials) valuable.

I would treasure it forever.

Wow.  I am surprised.  I was worried it would be to "old" a gift.  Or to trite.   You guys have helped ease a HUGE knot!!!

I'm not entirely sure what that is, but anything handmade is way better than something you buy!
