Wedding Dress Quilt with Center Block Detail, 48x60

$ 450.00



This quilt design is similar to the Original Wedding Dress Quilt but with a center block that highlights a part of your quilt as the focal point- typically the front bodice or back of the dress.

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.

Perfectly Preserved

The transformation from dress to quilt is stunning and perfectly done! I am in love with the final product! The care and precision taken is remarkable and makes the keepsake so much better than just preserving it. Thank you for this glorious treasure you made!

Kimberly (Richardson, US)

Gorgeous! Jenn combined both mine and my mother’s wedding dresses. I love the two tones of our dresses together, and Jenn kept the significant details of the dresses, like the running embroidered flowers along the edges, that she also incorporated throughout the design. I was so nervous to “destroy” our dresses, but what good were they sitting in the attic for years?? I couldn’t be happier with how this turned out. It is definitely a beautiful piece!

Wedding dress quilt

My mom passed and I found her 45 plus year old Dress in the closet. It was a size zero and they were able to use most of the lace and pearls to make this quilt. It’s well made and very beautiful. I gave them permission to pick the best background for the quilt and they had a backing which matched it exactly. I could not be more pleased to have this memory of my mother. I very much love the block design because it’s not even squares and adds an elegant look to the quilt.

Great Memento

My mother-in-law passed away last year and she still had her dress she wore at my wedding, so I ordered the wedding quilt with center square to be made from her dress and it turned out so great. We gave her a handkerchief for our wedding and the personalization on it was used as the center square…the quilt is beautiful and such a great way to keep her dress and her memory! So very pleased with how it turned out and the quality. Very well made and well worth the wait!

Thank you, my niece loved her quilt.
