Paulette wanted a quilt for her daughter, who is getting married this summer and a pillow for herself. What a great idea, a pillow so she could still have a remembrance of her wedding, once she gave the quilt to her daughter!
The dress was made of a nice taffeta fabric with a beautiful embellished bodice, and trim and lace around the hem.
The center of the quilt is a circle made from the l trim on the dress, with embroidered names and date in the center, and feather quilting. The inner border is fabric with a lace overlay, quilted in the design of the lace. The outer border is the dress fabric with a nice quilted feather design.
Paulette wanted me to incorporate the lace and buttons from the dress in the pillow. For the front, I deconstructed the bodice and put it as an overlay on the pillow, with buttons down the sides. The back of the pillow is lace pieced into a frame for their names and wedding date.
