Wedding Dress Quilt

I know I have been gone for a while. But I have been busy. Conan was out of town for work for 6 weeks and I've done the whole 'single parent' thing before, but I was super busy this go around! And to top it all off we are going to be moving in just over a month! Now I really have my hands full!

But I wanted to share with you something that I finished a little while ago. I had this friend contact me about making her wedding and bridesmaid dresses into a quilt. She really just wanted them made into something she could cherish.

Of course I told her I would, but I did not think it would be so hard for me to cut into that dress. I had it for a full two weeks just sitting there.

She wanted me to cut up her wedding dress!

Well I did some planning and drew up a pattern, and then I did it - I cut into her wedding dress!

When I had the top all done I posted this picture to facebook to show her that I actually was making some progress.
She loved it. She said she teared up just looking at it. And that made my day. I really wanted her to love it.
I finished it all up and tied it up pretty for her. And she loved it even more!

I have been making a few t-shirt quilts that I will post later - that is if I do not get sidetracked by life and the moving thing!

Pin It! \
