Wedding Dress Quilt for Debi

Debi wanted me to make a wedding dress quilt from her dress. Her daughter is getting married, and she wanted to give it to her at her wedding shower.


The gown was champagne lace over satin, with a lace ruffle at the bottom of the skirt. I used the satin for the quilt, with lace from her dress in the center design, and the lace ruffle around the outer border.  SI used a feather design for the quilting.

Wedding Dress Quilt for Connie

Connie had a bed runner made from her wedding dress.  She decided she would prefer a quilt, so she sent it to me, with the leftover fabric and lace from her dress.


To adapt the runner into a quilt, I cut about 12" out of the center, matching up the lace going down the quilt, and added a border with lace on each side.   I quilted the center in a feather pattern around the lace, and another feather design in the border.

Wedding Dress Quilt for Misty's Grandbaby

Misty had a pretty satin wedding dress, with lace motifs on the skirt.  The bodice and sleeves also had beautiful lace with lots of beading.  She wanted a baby quilt for her grandbaby who is due in a few months.


I put the center front lace from the bodice in the center of the quilt, and lace from the sleeves in the corners and centers of the inner border.  The quilting design gave the illusion of two diamond shapes around the lace.  The outer border was motifs from her skirt, with a feather quilting design.

Wedding dress quilt for Sandy

Sandy sent me her husband's tie along with her dress for a wedding dress quilt.  Her dress had a net overskirt, with an underskirt covered with embroidery and sequins.  The lining of her dress was a pretty satin. 


I embroidered the names and wedding date in a heart in the satin center of the quilt, with a feather design around the embroidery.  Her husband's tie made a narrow green border, then the lace from her underskirt was over satin in the middle border.  The satin outer border had a quilted feather design.
