The Original Wedding Dress Quilt, 48x60
- How it works
Turn your wedding dress into a beautiful handmade quilt! Your dress will be pieced with parts of your dress to create a keepsake quilt that can be cherished for years to come. Don't leave your dress in a box- display it in a quilt! Reverses to 100% white cotton fabric.
Hand-cut pieces of your dress will be pieced together to highlight the unique qualities of your dress, plus any additional special touches you want to include in the design. The entire quilt top will be made from your dress, unless there is not enough dress material to work with. In this case, we can incorporate coordinating fabric or you can add another article of clothing (groom's suit/tie, bridesmaid dress, mother's wedding dress, etc)
Finished quilt measures approximately 48x60 inches.

I have been moving my preserved wedding dress around on military moves for 25 years! I knew my daughter would not wear my wedding dress. Plus I do not have one creative gene in my body when in comes to sewing projects so what was I going to do with this dress? Thank goodness for The Patchwork Bear! They made a beautiful wedding dress quilt that I have placed in my guest room for an extra throw and should I have grand babies a story behind the quilt! Thank You PW Bear!
The folks at The Patchwork Bear did a beautiful job transforming my 20+ year old wedding dress, which was never very expensive and was grass and cake stained, into a lovely quilt. I'm so glad I found them! Thanks!
My daughter Rebecca was so overwhelmed when she opened the wedding quilt you made for her. Because of COVID we had to cancel her wedding twice. We decided to have a small ceremony and this quilt will be included Thank you so much for this beautiful keepsake
So glad I could save the memories of my wedding day in this beautiful quilt!
