    Default Wedding Dress Quilt......completed! Can't load photos!

    I actually finished this before Christmas and it was a Christmas gift for the bride from her mom (my boss). She wanted me to make a quilt/coverlet from her daughters wedding gown. It was very emotional for me and I really stressed over it. The wedding gown was a very simple, strapless gown with crystal medallions around the bottom. It was puffy with lots of "pickups". After I deconstructed it, I split the front skirt and rearranged to the sides making a rounded coverlet large enough to fit my queen bed. I took the bodice and crafted 2 pillows....one from the front and one from the back. I used scraps to make a quilted looking ornament. I told the bride if she ever decides she wants a more traditional "quilt", I'd be happy to cut it up more. At this point, she is very happy and I'm so relieved. Here are the pictures.


    UH OH! How to add photos??

    1st Picture: This was the train to the dress......now is the "bottom of the rounded coverlet.
    2nd Picture: This is the side of the coverlet and part of the large medallion in the middle of the coverlet. There was a large
    yellow spot there so the "front" of the dress medallion was placed here. There are also some pillows to the left.
    3rd & 4th Picture: Ornament made from scraps and extra beads.
    5 & 6th Picture: The pillows. You can see that the back pillow has the back of the dress with the lacings. The front of the dress is the front pillow.

    I love this!! I think it's so cool! It's so clever to do something like this, rather then put it in a box, never to be seen again. You did an awesome job!
    Have a blessed day in HIS name!

    Gorgeous I can see why she's pleased!! I've been debating what to do with my wedding dress for the past year and a half but I just can't make up my mind. Here was my gown:

    It's as big as a freakin' tent, never did fit me properly even after $300 worth of alterations. I just want to chop the f'er up and not have to see the catastrophy ever again! lol But because of the material it's made of (taffeta? I think?) it's just not clicking in my head as to what I can use it for. Maybe a good bonfire Thankfully I'm much happier with the marriage than I am with the dress lol
