Quilt and Two Pillows for Barrie

Barrie wanted a wedding dress quilt made from her wedding dress and a flowered bridesmaid dress, and wanted some colored thread in the quilting. 

The wedding dress was used for the center and inner border, with lace from her bodice in part of the center, and lace from her skirt overlaid on the border.  The open areas of the center panel were quilted using a rose colored thread, and their names and the date were embroidered in the center.

The outer border was the bridesmaid dress, quilted around the flowers and leaves.  And the bow from the back of her dress was put on the bottom of the quilt.

For the two pillows, I used the same design, with satin from the dress in the center, quilted in a feather design. Then bridesmaid dress borders and lace from her skirt on the outer part of the pillows.  Bows from her dress were placed in the center of each pillow front.
