Dress quilt

Several of you said you'd like to see the whole quilt of this one. Thank you blog readers for sending me the photo of the whole quilt and not just two little dresses.
One of my favorites from the Sisters Quilt Show.


I did mention before the quiltmaker used her mother's wedding dress and old clothes of hers when she was little to make this a personalized quilt.

I hope you are all enjoying your weekend!

  5. Mom made quilts for her girls using the scraps from our clothes--since she made all our clothes, but nothing as fun as this with the dress shapes.

  7. It's good to share. I'm glad I got to see this one at the Sister's show. I see others got more close-ups. I made a Sunbonnet Sue for my oldest grand-daughter with leftovers from the clothes I made for her mother and aunt. This one is way cuter.

  9. I love that and love the idea of using old clothes in a quilt. I wish I had kept the kids clothes, but I do have some in a quilt I made years ago.

    so glad you were able to get pictures of this quilt....I wish i could have done something like this with my Mothers clothes when she passed away....I was way to young to even think of quilting yet.

  16. Interesting that someone would have pieces of fabric from old clothes from that long ago. It makes a wonderful memory quilt.

  17. Great quilt, love the embroidered hangers and quilted details in the dresses. What a perfect pattern to use those old clothes in, makes me wish I had some. My non quilting friends think all quilts are made out of old clothes.

  18. Quilts with a family connection or a reminder of our past are the very best. This is such a wonderful, creative quilt. Thanks for sharing it with us, and thanks to the blog readers who also had photos to share.

  20. Hi Lori! I LOVE this quilt. h I wish I had some of my mom's clothes to use...it would make an adorable child's quilt too.

    I can t tell, from any of the pictures: Is it pieced? Or applique? If pieced, I wonder what the block would look like, any ideas, anyone?

    thx! lizzy
