Bridal Shower Game

I've had several people request this game, so Ive posted it here.  
I got the idea from pinterest here :
And then we pulled questions from these websites:

These were our final questions we gave the couple, and then we used the ones we had time for.

2.     How old were you when you had your first kiss?
3.     What is one thing you do that one of your parents is notorious for doing as well?
4.     What is the #1 most played song on your iPod or other device?
5.     What would be the name of the autobiography of your life?
6.     What did you do growing up that got you into trouble?
7.     What’s the best/worst gift you’ve ever received?
8.     What is something you’ve learned about your finance since you've been engaged?
9.     What was the first thing that attracted me to her/him?
10.                        What was your favorite part about the day you got engaged?
11.                        If you had a whole day of free time to spend it however you liked, what would you do?
12.                        On your first date, what were you nervous about?
13.                        In 5 years, how do you see the two of you?
14.                        What are you looking forward to the most about your wedding?
15.                        What is the most annoying thing you do to him/her?
16.                        When did you know you were in love?
17.                        What movies makes you teary?
18.                        What would you do if you won a million dollars?
19.                        What have you always wanted to name a child?

Rich and I have been working hard on some projects.  Here it is all completed (with little N-man joining in on the fun):

We got a new bed in May.  So we needed something for the bed, and I originally wanted a beautiful comforter.  But I was not a fan of how bulky and heavy they are.  So then I got this crazy idea to make a quilt.  After searching for weeks, I decided on this pattern by Miss Rosie. found here.  

First I picked the fabrics.  I got them all at Cactus Quilt Shop on Orange Grove and Oracle.  I was in love with their whole selection. 

Fabric all cut out


First squares all sewn

Big center star.  If you look closely, you can see that I had to unpick it after taking this picture.  I'm not telling how many times I unpicked the stiches in this one big square so the seams would match. 

It's actually looking like a quilt!

Almost done...This was all the piecing that I used the pattern for.  Just have to add the borders to make it fit the bed.  

In the meantime, Rich built this beautiful headboard for our bed.  I am so in love with it!
See more of his project here:

Completed quilt!  Such a great feeling.  The borders are on, it's been quilted, and the binding is complete.  I am sooo happy with it.  

One more final image of the completed quilt with the headboard.
