I think I've found a new "specialty" -- Wedding Dress Quilts. My mother gave me her 62 year old wedding dress and I made a quilt out of the satin, lace and buttons (see the pictures below). I'm so happy with the result, and she was thrilled!! It's a whole cloth quilt, with lace added, and is about 40" square. I put their wedding picture and invitation on the back.
Seems like an interesting idea for specialty quilts -- I already have 2 other people who would like their wedding dresses made into quilts.
Why keep that old wedding dress in the closet when you can have a quilt or wall hanging that will remind you of your wedding!
