Andrea wanted to incorporate her bridesmaid's dresses and sashes, a Celtic design in a border, and jasmine flowers in the quilting design. The beautiful lace bodice became the "frame" around the center flower design.
Brenda loves irises, and has horses and dogs. I quilted irises in the center of her quilt in colored thread, then quilted the rest of the center in a watery design. The horse and dog motif was quilted in the corner.
Cathy wanted a flower her quilt, and the graduation hood from her college included. I used the fabric from the hood in the corners of the center panel, a flower design in the center and outer border, and used a straight line background fill.
