    Just finished the top, only the black border to go. I have used the floral print as the focal point to this quilt, it was my old sundress from the 80s which I loved to death and had kept all these years (too big for it now) I love the idea that I can now have it, if not on me, on my bed. Will be hand quilting this with my hoop and black thread.

    Beautiful quilt & great way to repurpose the dress! I have the dresses that I wore in both of my sister's weddings that I couldn't bear to part with & you have given me a great idea!

    Great use of a fabric you love - now you can enjoy it all over again! Hope you show it to us when you finish hand-quilting!

    I like it. Love the sentimentality behind the floral too.
