    Every night I find cool ideas and add it to my list of things to do.

    Well tonight, I run across the wedding dress quilt post. I following it around to a link that show a picture of a beautiful quilt made from someone's wedding dress.

    I print it off, go running with excitement and explain everything. After all, the dress is in a box up in the attic so why not make it where I can see it everyday.

    He says, so let me see if I am getting this right, you want to cut up a $500.00 dress. Still smiling, I say uh-huh.

    That site is dangerous you need to stay off of it.

    LOL, just wait, he will be amazed when I get a chance to start and complete my project! :D :mrgreen:

    Have you seen any of the posts about making quilts from men's shirts or ties or t-shirts or even the denim quilts????? Show him one of them and he will be padlocking his dresser and closet.

    A wedding dress quilt sounds perfect to me. My DH said the same thing when I discovered the vintage sewing machine section and was bitten by the bug. He is as bad as I am at finding "just one more"! This is why I have 17 SM.

    Tell him that if you still have it, you just may keep it for your next wedding!!!

    I'll bet he will decide rather suddenly that he would LOVE a quilt made from it.

    it is a $500 dollar dress sitting in an attic doing no one any good.

    Have you ever heard of making baby christening quilts out of the Mother's wedding dress.

    It beats letting the dress waste away in the attic.

    I am in the process of a wedding dress quilt. Hubby was apprehensive about it too. So I bought a 2k wedding dress for 75.00 on craigslist. Absolutely beautiful. I'm using that to make a quilt so not to ruin mine in case it all goes bad

    This is what I did, in fact, because I am from the era, when we used can-cans [everyone know what they are?] the skirt had so much fabric, and I got 2 christening gowns from my dress.

    Gee, now I'm thinking I should have kept my wedding dress instead of leaving it on the floor of the guest bedroom when I moved out and divorced!! :lol: :lol: :lol: I decided that HE could take it to Salvation Army! :-D :-D

    My DD1 was married during January so she also ordered a matching street length cape to go with her dress. She is saving her gown but is having small blankets made, three of them, one for each of her children. She will give them out as they have their first children. I think it's a wonderful plan!

    My wedding dress was professionally cleaned and boxed and has sat at the back of my closet for 37 yrs. I guess right now I can give up hope that anyone else will wear it since I had sons and both my DDILs were not my size. Taking it out and making a quilt sounds kind of cool. Not sure I could cut into it. Please post your finished quilt. It will help me seriously think of doing the same thing.

    LOL, love all the responses.

    Later on I brought it up again and told him just think of how much money WE would save since I do not have to purchase the fabric. :D

    This is him :roll:

    All joking aside, he is a good man and supports my hobby. He just never knows what goes on in my head, guess he is afraid one day there will not be a stitch of clothes in the closets because I made a quilt out of them. Look at this way, at least we will be warm with quilts.

    I am a newbie at sewing so I want to perfect my techniques before I cut up my memories so it will be a while before I make my wedding quilt but it is now on my bucket list.

    Buy one from the thrift store and use it for your first quilt. He will then understand why your idea is a good one.
    Unless you tell him the one in the attic was only worn once by mistake.
