Ruffled Wedding Dress Quilt

Ruffled Wedding Dress Quilts can be interesting to design and sew!

Audri's wedding dress had a skirt and train that had LOTS of ruffles.  She wanted something that really showed off the ruffles, was a less traditional design, and included the dusty pink ombre at the bottom of the dress.


So I used the ruffles from the dress for a large part of the quilt, and left a curved "pie shape" in the corner for machine quilting.  


The satin underskirt was used for the machine quilted area of the quilt.  I used dusty pink thread for the background quilting, to tie in with the ombre in the ruffles. Lots of feathers in the quilting design!


I'm very pleased with the result, and Audri was really happy with it too.
