Update on the Wedding Dress Quilt

Thanks to all who have left comments about the Wedding Dress Quilt. My customer picked it up Thursday and has a week to sew on the binding and all the embellishments before the 10 year anniversary date. I am hoping to get a final photo from her, it is a SURPRISE for the happy couple -- whom I am hoping does not have any reason to check out quilting on the internet (grin) and have their surprise spoiled due to my photos!. Here's a link to my webshot album where you can see all the close ups including the front and back!

As a quilter, I sometimes like the back as much as the front. And yes, wool batting is fabulous to quilt on. I haven't tried silk yet, even thought I have a sample...on my list of 'one day I'll do that"

In the meantime I'm working on a king size Pam Bono design quilt that the customer said "quilt as desired as long as it has feathers!" So stay tuned!
