    I agree.

    Hi , I have been thinking of turning my wedding dress into a quilt too. It was my mother's wedding dress too. Last year during a very wet winter the dress unfortunately got some rust marks in it, which are not treatable.
    so I am now considering what you have done.
    Mind you it might take a while before I am brave enough to do it.

    thx jane

    Beautiful bride, wonderful wallhanging. Nice way to have your Grandfather with you when you got married.

    I got mine outand had it on display at our 50th celebration earlier this month. I even have my shoes, 3-inch heels, pointed toes, and took them. My friends(?) made me put them on and walk in them. I did, but was afraid I'd fall and break something.

    You did an amazing job! It looks wonderful. Although it's a crazy quilt, I am amazed at how different it looks from other crazy quilts, due to the fabric/color scheme. Great job!

    That is absolutely beautiful and you made a beautiful bride. I am so glad you kept some pieces for your sons' future. Perhaps you may have enough to do a couple of more blocks to frame as pictures. I have a crocheted doily that a friend made for me that I framed.

    Thank you

    I have 7 daughters and none of them fit into my dress. I was really small then. Boy how things have changed.I could never fit into the dress now. Hopefully my grand daughters will want to use it. I now have 7 grand daughters and 10 grand sons. Out of all these I hope to have someone use the dress. I made a crazy quilt for my niece and she loved it. Of course, I don't have one.lol I also made one out of baby fabric for my grand daughter but instead of beading I used french knots. My daughter said it was too nice to use and put it on a quilt rack. I'm sure it will be handed down to another generation as I'm sure yours will be.Your family will surely cherish it as it is beautiful

    Oh gosh, you were beautiful in that dress! I don't know if I could cut it...I may feel that way since we eloped and I didn't have a "wedding dress". I do love what you did with it though....fantastic idea...what a treasure!

    This is just lovely. And you were so smart to do this. Roughly 40 years later, mine is still in it's secure box, invisible to all.
