Wedding Dress Quilt for Coti

Coti's beautiful wedding dress was chiffon with a lot of lace, lined with satin.  She wanted a quilt that showed off the beautiful lace.  The satin was used as the top of the quilt, then individual pieces of the lace finished the design, with lots of machine quilting.

In the center, I divided the space.  The bride and groom's names and wedding date were embroidered in the center, with a lace design around the embroidery.  I did a diamond shaped feather swirl pattern next, similar to the inner border.  Then a row of lace, and a feather design in the corners.

The lace was in long pieces going down the skirt of the dress.  I put the lace strips in the corners of the outside border, and quilted a background fill rather than my usual feathers.  This made the lace stand out, and be the focal point of the border.  The inner border was a pretty feather swirl design.
