Erika's Ornate Wedding Dress

Erika's dress was really ornate, had big train and lots of lace and beading.  We decided to use the beaded lace in the inner border, and in a diamond shape in the center of the quilt. Her dress had a big bow, satin flowers and streamers on the back, I also incorporated those on the bottom of the quilt. 


Their names and wedding date were embroidered in gold inside a heart in the center of the quilt, surrounded by a quilted heart and feather design. The outer border was quilted in a nice feather design.

Diane's Quilt from her Mother's Wedding Dress

Diane's Mother had the most amazing satin wedding dress.  It was Candlelight color, had a hoop skirt, and had the biggest train I'd ever seen.  She was married in 1942 and the satin was still in beautiful condition.

In the center of the quilt, I created two feather ovals, with flowers inside.  The inner border continued the flowers and leaves.  For the outer border, I quilted a pretty feather design.
