Wedding Dress Quilt Completed for Marissa

Finished another wedding dress quilt!

Marissa sent me a gorgeous dress, with a satin underskirt with lace covered netting, and lots of pearls and other glittery things.  Here is a picture of the dress (not the bride).

I deconstructed the dress and used the satin underskirt for the top of the quilt. Then I covered almost the entire quilt with the gorgeous lace from the quilt, sewing around all those edges!  I machine quilted designs in the blank areas.  

We decided to make a scalloped border on the quilt, I think it really finished off the quilt, a straight edge wouldn't have been as elegant! The finished quilt is 48" x 52".  

Here is the full quilt -- it really is square, the picture is deceptive :)
