Wedding Dress Quilt for Deb

Deb had a beautiful wedding dress with a ruffled skirt, lots of embellishments on the bodice, pearls draped across the back, and a large bow.  


The top of the quilt is the satin lining of her dress. I incorporated the lace and beading into the quilting design, and put two layers of ruffles on the outer border.  The bow fit perfectly at the bottom of the quilt. 


Deb asked me to add some teal color to the design, so I stitched the feathers on the inner border in teal thread. The finished quilt is 44" x 52".  I use wool batting, which quilts well and resists creasing.
