Remembrance Wedding Dress Quilt

Several ladies got together and had this quilt made for a coworker who lost their spouse a year ago. The dress was made of beautiful satin with lots of lace and beading. 

The lace in the center of the quilt was from the bodice of the dress. 

I used the beaded lace that went down the train of the dress for the inner border. The outer border had bodice lace at the top and bottom.

I used several feather quilting designs to divide up the larger areas and add interest. The finished quilt is about 44" x 56".

Satin & Lace Wedding Dress Quilt for Mary

Mary's dress had really nice satin fabric, and the lace was beautiful.  She requested a  curved feather design in the outer border.  I used the lace going down the train on the back of her dress in the inner border. The bodice and skirt lace was made into a heart shape in the center.  Their names and wedding date were embroidered in the center.  Around the heart I quilted a feather design.

Four Colored Wedding Dress Quilt for Rachel

Rachel didn't have a lot of usable fabric in her dress, but she was able to order more of the satin fabrics, and fabric used for her husband's tie from the seamstress who made her dress. We incorporated the navy tie fabric and the pink and grey wedding fabric into flanges and narrow borders, and the champagne dress satin was used for the rest of the quilt.  

She had a dogwood theme in her wedding. The lace from the bodice dress was used in the center of the quilt, and Incorporated a dogwood quilting design in the center, with a feather design in the corners.  

The narrow borders had a feather design, and the outer border of the quilt was another dogwood quilting design.
