Quilt and Pillow from Cindy’s Wedding Dress

Ornate wedding dresses make beautiful quilts and pillows! Cindy’s dress was satin, with a lot of openwork lace and lots of sequins and pearls.

I made a heart shape in the center of the quilt from ten pieces of lace from the skirt of the dress, over the satin from her dress.  The inner border is quilted satin, with lace embellishing the corners and sides. The outer border is satin, covered with the lace from the bottom of the skirt, with lace in the corners.

The pillow was made from the bodice of the dress.  The bodice front was made into the front of the pillow, and the back of the bodice was the back of the pillow.  A quilted design filled the open areas.

Quilt and pillow for Rose

Rose’s wedding dress had a beautiful lace train that she wanted to incorporate into a quilt. The center of her quilt is solid lace from the train, quilted in the lace design.  The inner border is quilted satin, with the pretty bows from her sleeves placed in the corners. The outer border is satin, with the lace from the bottom of her skirt around the border. 

She also wanted to have an embellished lace pillow. The beautiful lace with sequins and pearls made a beautiful pillow. The front of the pillow incorporated their favorite wedding picture printed on fabric, and another pretty bow, and the back just showed off the beautiful lace with sequins and pearls.

Catie’s Three Layered Wedding Dress Quilt

Catie's beautiful wedding dress had three layers. The bottom layer was a pretty satin, the middle layer was a fine mesh covered in sequins, and the top layer was tulle with beaded/sequined lace embellishments.

The center was satin, embroidered with the bride and groom's names and wedding date inside of a diamond shape made from lace motifs from the skirt of the dress.  The rest of the center was quilted in two feather patterns, the inner swirl pattern mimics the outer border pattern. 

The inner border was satin, covered in the sequined mesh, with lace sewn on in the corners and spaced around the border.  The outer border is satin, quilted in a feather swirl design.
