Pink Wedding Dress Quilt for Michelle

Michelle's wedding dress was made by her mother.  It was off-white silk brocade, lined in pink, which gave the gown a warm tint. I designed her quilt with a square center, and two borders.  The lace edging from her dress went around the center motif, and in the inner border.  Then I machine quilted a pretty feather design. Her wedding invitation was made into a label on the back of the quilt.



Michelle donated the leftover fabric to be used to make Angel Gowns for the NICU Helping Hands. I am a volunteer seamstress for this organization, that provides support and gowns to families with babies that don't make it home from the hospital.


I'm really pleased with the results!
