Two Wedding Dresses, Four Wedding Dress Quilts

Occasionally I get a request for two wedding dress quilts from one dress.  If the dress has enough fabric, two quilts might be possible.

Kathy had a pretty dress that was a very pale yellow.  She wanted two baby quilts for her grandchildren, and I was able to make two almost identical quilts for her.

I also used the lace from her dress in the center, with the edging from the bottom of the skirt for the borders.  Quilted in a fancy feather design, with a scalloped border.

Joanna's dress had tiers of beautiful lace on the skirt, and a lace train.  She asked me to make two quilts from her wedding dress for her two daughters.  She wanted a lace ruffle on one, and the other one with no ruffle.  

The lace from her train was used in the center rectangular panel of each quilt.   I made a lace ruffle that went over the outer border of one quilt. The lace from the bodice was placed in the center of each quilt, with feather quilting.
