I have my wedding dress, along with both of my girls', in storage. With them I have some other special occasion dresses, all connected to a special time in our lives. I've been wanting to make 3 quilts, using all of the dresses, to give to our 3 granddaughters. I'm afraid to start taking the wedding gowns apart in fear of not having enough material for 3 whole quilts. I can't think of how to add to the material without buying more, which would take away from the keepsake character of the quilts, in my thinking. These thoughts came out all barbled, but I hope you know what I'm saying. Any suggestions? I've only made a baby quilt and it was with a machine - way back when. I want to do this by hand. I've even acquired an old fashion quilting stand.
Your suggestion might be to find a quilter and have them give me a quote....right?
