Lauren Funk sent us her wedding dress, her mother’s wedding dress and her grandmother’s wedding dress to have us combine them into one quilt.
This project was extremely challenging. I wanted to capture the primary elements of each wedding dress and some of those elements did not want to lay flat or work with the other fabrics. However, I was proud of the final quilt. It was a bit large for my photo wall so I had trouble getting a good picture of it.
We made this gown from Anna-Kathryn Kline’s wedding dress several years ago for her newborn daughter. She contacted me because she has another daughter and wanted to use the gown for her baptism but the gown was too big. I was able to alter it to a smaller size. I’ve always been proud of this .
Joy Scott sent her wedding dress to have us make an heirloom christening gown for her granddaughter. The original dress had some lovely corded lace but not much lace trim so I chose to make a lace element on the front skirt and put the lace on the gown bodice. We used up pretty-much all of the lace in this little gown.
