Quilters' Show & Tell - Please Vote before Monday!


I have entered the Quilters' Show and Tell Contest - Commemorative Quilts.  Please take a look at the beautiful quilts in the contest, and vote for your favorite. Hopefully that will be mine!

My quilt, Dixon's Wedding Quilt, was made for my parents, to commemorate their 62 years of marriage.  It was made from my mother's wedding dress.


It is satin, with lace overlays on the borders.  On the back, their wedding picture and invitation were printed on fabric and appliqued onto the quilt.

There are also decorative ribbons and buttons from the dress in the corners.
