Quilt for Dana's Mom

Dana's Mom was having her 90th birthday, and Dana wanted to give her a quilt made from her wedding dress. The dress was lace over satin, and in really good condition, considering it was 60 years old!


A central diamond design was used, with alternating lace covered satin, and satin borders.  Dana wanted a fairly simple feather design in the quilting, and it was a pretty finish for the quilt.


I was also able to make a pillow from the bodice and sleeves of the dress, with the bodice front and sleeves on the front, and the bodice back with covered buttons on the back. 


The quilt and pillow were finished in time for the birthday party, I hope she enjoys it!
