Antonia's Wedding Dress Baby Quilt

Antonia wanted to make a baby quilt from her wedding dress. The dress had some really pretty embellished embroidery going down the skirt and on the bodice.  She wanted to use as much as posible, so I placed the larger pieces on each side of the center, with a smaller piece above.  We agreed on a swirl design for the center quilting.  The inner border was straight lines 1/4" apart, and the outer border was quilted in a feather design.

The heart on the back of the quilt is made from her mother's dress. She is expecting a baby, so the label will be filled in after the baby is born, and placed near the heart.
