I helped my friend make a throw-sized quilt out of her granddaughter's wedding dress. She cut 6.5" squares out of the plain and out of the embroidered sections with one embroidered section as a rectange (2 squares x 6 squares). They were arranged into a pleasing pattern and stitched in the ditch. The embroidered squares were stitched around the motifs. I thought it needed more quilting, because the plain squares "ballooned" when holding the quilt vertically for display.
